Tis the season for cold flakes and warm hot chocolate. It’s the stuff knitting dreams are made of! I almost put in It’s a Wonderful Life yesterday I was feeling so festive and cozy, but I decided it was a little early. The heater is broken in my living room so I was bundled under some fleece blankets with a wooly scarf and hat on and knitting away. My hubby even made me some tea to keep warm. It was magic with the snow falling outside. Snow is, of course, only magical if you don’t have to get out and drive the Vancouver streets (particularly the unplowed side streets…..). The morning when I set off to work was a much more stressful and less magical moment! Once I was in for the night though I felt a lot better about the weather!
This weather definitely has me thinking scarf and I’m even feeling a little cabley lately (I think I made up that word but you know what I mean). I’m currently working on the Honey Cowl (see post below for details) but I had a real tweed hankering as I watched the snow pile up on the patio table. The next knit in line is Dryad from Brooklyn Tweed. This beautiful cabled masterpiece is knit up in Berocco’s Blackstone Tweed. It’s a lovely soft tweedy yarn in some fantastic shades. Blackstone is mostly wool with a little mohair and angora thrown in to make is soft. Come on in to knit night tonight and get one started!
To make a Dryad of your very own you will need:
Dryad by Jared Flood
4-6 balls of Blackstone Tweed (depending on desired length)
a cable needle
