We are having a splendid one so far. Thursday and Friday it was freezing cold and snowing and then melting. Yesterday and today, it's sunny, blue sky and about 50something degrees. What a life it is!
So... the Winter accessory I'm making is called a "Bosom Friend" or "Heart Warmer" or "Sontag".
This isn't the pattern I'm doing, but it looks very neat and I definitely want to try it sometime.
The yarn is from the Shetland Isles first and then the small, delightful seaside town of Mendocino, California, which is where I bought it.
My Mama took me there for my post-Graduation trip in May 2010. It is one of my favorite places in the world!
And here is the yarn shop where I got the yarn for my project!
The Pattern... I'm actually using a shawl pattern, but I think it'll double as a "Bosom Friend" (Isn't that the greatest name?) Here's the free download. I'm using the "Heart Shaped" shawl pattern.
The yarn... (The color is named Bramble. Isn't that cute!) Ooh! I love wool so much!
