I've been working on some knitting. Yesterday, I started a Jane Thornley freerange scarf. It is based on a scarf "recipe" for it that is free on her website.
Most of the yarns I'm using are wool, plus a few novelty yarns. The blue in the picture below is actually very purple. The combination of purple and orange is giving it a bit of a Halloween look. I wasn't really trying for that, I just like the combination of purple and orange.
Also, wool breathes better than acrylic and retains it's insulating properties if it gets wet. I would like to move away from acrylic and work more with wool. But sometimes price gets in the way.
