Sunday Morning Knit Wit ~ Classic Cable Collar

Good morning! 

It is a balmy 55 degrees here this morning, which is very unusual for mid-November in upstate NY.  I'll be outside planting some flower bulbs for next spring's enjoyment today and enjoying the mild weather.

I'm so happy to highlight my newest creation today, which is my own design as well as my first knit project using my own handspun 2 ply yarn!  This classic neckwarmer was a dream to make - from beginning to end. I started by spinning the gorgeous Corriedale roving (purchased on and then reverse-spinning it into a lucious 2 ply yarn.

I then knit it up into this lovely collar/neckwarmer/mini-shawl with rows and rows of cables. It just shouts classic romantic to me, with 7 rose buttons.

I'm working out the pattern, so look for the PDF for this one in the near future if you are interested in knitting one up yourself.  The finished one is available in my etsy shop right now if you can't resist~

Until next week, keep your needles clicking!

OOOOOOO! That would be a beautiful cape if you knit it to fingertip length!

What do you think of Artfire compared to Etsy?

I'm thinking of opening a shop.
