Crochet neckwarmer of many colours


 I am really proud of this spectacular moebius loop neckwarmer!  It was a free pattern on the Drops website that I fell in love with as soon as it appeared. It took a while to track down the Drops Delight yarn in this colourway (10) but I eventually managed to lay hands on some.  This colourway provides the most contrast within each ball and gives a really great overall effect.  It was really easy to make - took about a week. I had enough yarn left to make the matching hat, which is a fairly slouchy beanie style.
 
If I can get hold of any more of this yarn I would love to make the handwarmers that go with it.  Drops yarn is amazing as it is really cheap and such great quality.

The new series of Danish crime thriller The Killing started a few weeks ago and I am completely gripped both by the plot and Sarah Lund's latest sweater. As luck would have it, Scandinavian Knitwear Design have come up with a copycat pattern for this traditional Faroese style sweater and are also able to supply the perfect wool to knit up your very own Killing sweater.  I have opted to make it in dark blue and cream - much the same as Lund's.  It is knitting up quickly and I would hope to be wearing it when I watch the concluding episodes in a couple of weeks. Sadly , the pattern seems to have lost something in translation and doesn't entirely make sense so I am having to work out a few issues as I knit.
 
Finished and being worn is the Curio sweater that I knitted from the Patons Misty that had been hiding in my stash for years. This yarn was super cheap and makes an acceptable substitute for Kidsilk Aura when held double. The style of the sweater is very simple with minimal shaping but it looks quite good on and is very warm and soft. A success!
 
I have knitted the Lady Detective Hat from Mel Clarke's "Knit Two Together" several times before and very much like the shape of it.  When My friend from work asked me to knit her a hat with a brim I remembered this pattern and though it would be perfect.  I used Patons Colourworks Aran held double - being careful to try and match up the colour runs.
