In my defense, it has been a busy year!

I knew I had completely neglected my blog, but had no idea it was a year since I had posted! And whew, what a year it has been! I stopped posting soon after moving from the UK to the USA. That was quite the adventure, and with pretty much starting anew here, working full time, and starting on my Masters degree, I have been very busy!

We are due to move house again at the end of the week (still staying in Arizona, just a different part of the city), but I plan to spend more time updating my blog. No more neglect!!

So let me start by posting my latest FO. I got a gorgeous batt from Butterfly Girl Designs. It was 3oz of 60% merino, 30% bamboo, 10% nylon firestar. Truly gorgeous, soft, and squooshy:

Which became:

It then became the Darkside Cowl:

It was actually made for me, but I have a ready and willing model in DS, so he is kindly demonstrating finished item. This was a fast and fun project. The firestar in the yarn makes it appear like it might be a bit rough or scratchy, but the merino and bamboo are actually super soft. Love it.
