What do you wear...

... when it's minus a million Celsius?

A turtleneck made out of Kidsilk Haze (held double!) Wow, this is the warmest sweater ever! A great thing for a girl nicknamed Nicold.

I'm very happy with the fit. It sheds like crazy though (mental note: do NOT wear with black pants).

Pattern: Bay by Kim Hargreaves, published in Rowan # 36
Yarn: Kidsilk Haze in Glacier and Pearl, 5 balls each
Needles: 4mm
Mods: The pattern calls for only one of the colours to be held double (giving a thick and thin effect) but I wanted an even fabric, so I held both colours double.


Sorry my posting is so sporadic. Things are a bit kookoo over here. Hope you're all well and keeping warm. Oh, and happy Chinese New Year!
