It’s Thanksgiving and Turkey in the US today. Here in Canada, we celebrated back in October.

In honour of our American friends’ special day, I’d like to share a recently completed project made from a skein of delightful corriedale wool gifted to me from Karen as part of PIF. I had originally thought of a pair of chunky, warm socks from one of Cat Bordhi’s designs, but instead opted for a Moebius from the Elegant Arrows pattern of Sivia Harding’s.

It took a few go ‘rounds to get the gist of the moebius cast-on, but once the “penny dropped”, it was very satisfying to see how quickly and easily the project knit up. As I said, the yarn was delightful. It was so springy and soft and a pleasure to work with. And as a finished project, the moebius is great, the perfect fit under a jacket as the temperatures drop.

Thank you all around to all who share their talents with others.
To Karen, for allowing me to work with her wonderful, hand-spun yarn. To Cat, for her tutorial on the deviously simple moebius cast-on, and to Sivia, for sharing her creativity in the pattern.

I'd saved this picture from a website quite some time ago and neglected to note the link and so unfortunately, can't give credit where credit is due.
