In a little under two months, I have knit a sweater.  Not quite the same pace as sewing, but it feels so nice to wrap yourself in wool for the winter.  I ordered my wool online from Quince and Co, it was quick to ship and the charges to Canada were relatively reasonable.  The colour was not quite as I expected, but it definitely grew on me as the yarn passed through my fingers.  The fantastic pattern is Nanook by Heidi Kirrmaeir.

Hopefully my silk Zinnia will be completed shortly, I’ve been scared of starting my button holes in the beautiful fabric.
