Thank you so much for the get well wishes, after a bit of rest I feel back to my normal self and projects have been flying off the needles.
With barely a yard to spare I managed to finish Idlewood with only 760 yards of Rowan Cashsoft Aran. Thank goodness for blocking because it was very nearly a crop top. It’s still a little on the short side and I am sad that it doesn’t have the pocket, but all the more reason to knit another one.
It was such a surprisingly quick knit, about a week from start to finish. The Cashsoft yarn is warm and soft as a kitten, I’ve even survived our first freezing wintery days wearing it with my autumn jacket. While knitting I found it funny that the cowl is almost bigger than the rest of the garment, but I love snuggling up under it. Plus, it looks cool.
I declare it the ultimate autumn layering garment, and will still be wearing it long after the snow falls.
