Finished on the first

It’s nice to start the year with a success. After my failure in Wovember to make anything successfully out of the Portland wool that I bought from Hannah at Spinning a Yarn, I am pleased to say that I’ve now used it to make a wonderfully warm pixie hood. The yarn is very soft and I combined it with some lambswool that I’ve had for ages to create this:

The pattern can be found here and it’s very simple.

  4. A first finish! That sets a great tone for a new year!

  5. I think it’s quite lovely and should keep you toasty. I wear a lot of scarves that are densely woven to keep the wind out of my ears and off my face. The Bells Palsy made all the nerve endings on that side of my face and ear very sensitive to cold and wind. I have to keep covered. Can’t even handle a blowing air conditioning unit in the summer months and wear a hat almost year round. Great that you have started the year with some success. I think I’d better get busy. 🙂

  6. Oooh, looks super-snug! You’ll need this now that the weather is taking a turn for the chilly!
