Rowan Big Wool Cardigan

This pattern is from one of the Rowan Studio books. I wanted to make a cardigan thick enough to be worn as a jacket, and this is definately warm enough. It was supposed to be the other way round (seams on the inside) but the way the pattern was meant that the collar wanted to turn in. After trying it on inside out I much prefer it with the seams showing, so that's how it is now. I can't decide on where the buttons are going though, I keep moving them around, I'm sure they'll find a home sooner or later!

Owl Jumper (Kate Davies)

I came across this gorgeous pattern for a jumper knitted in the round with a cabled yoke by Kate Davies. The pattern is for sale on her blog http://needled.wordpress.com/designs/
The cables are knitted to look like owls and I'm sooo loving it!
The wool is Rowan Cocoon and is very very soft, very fluffy and very warm :-)

I think it might just be the best thing I've made yet!
