In between the Christmas knitting I am managing to sneak in some time to work on my Dark Ice Cowl. I decided to go for this pattern, not the Smoke Ring with Lace Edging as I had originally planned, as the latter would have required some reworking of the pattern, and at the moment all I really want to do is fairly mindless knitting. Life is busy enough at this time of year!
I am using Cherry Hill Suri Lace Alpaca with dark grey beads (hence the name Dark Ice). It’s a little fiddly if I happen to hit a bead row whilst on the train, but other than that, this is a fun, easy pattern to make.
I’m looking forward to spending Christmas week finishing off a couple of projects; after that we are going away for a week over new year, so I may have to plan one or two new projects to take with me for the long plane journeys!
