We have been knitting Oswald Owl, a very cute pattern by Martin Storey found in the new Rowan at Home collection. Oswald is knitted using Rowan Hemp Tweed yarn. It is a fun knit and a good project for beginner, two colour knitters, as it is a simple square shape leaving you free to focus on the owl pattern. Perfect for Chrismas gifts we think.
James has finished knitting this shawl using The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering yarn which is a blend of alpaca, merino wool and bamboo, which makes a light and soft fabric with a wonderful drape. The pattern is Drachenfels by popuar shawl designer Melanie Berg (found on Ravelry).
