Using a thicker yarn, I made a lacy cowl that actually might keep you toasty. This, I call Thunder Cowl.
Veering away from an exclusively-Malabrigo book, I diversified by using this amazing skein of Madelinetosh Vintage in the colorway Black Velvet. Ship Bay Beret utilizes a broken, or "mistake" rib pattern that looks deceptively like brioche. Very sneaky.
Last, but definitely not least, is Stricken, knit with Dream In Color's new base, Jilly. I named it because it looks like bolts of lightning, ones that might strike. I had no idea (and this makes me a bad Waldorfian) that Stricken auf Deutsch means "to knit." This is equally embarrassing because Dream In Color was created by two Waldorf moms. Ah well, I took Spanish in school.
