On the needles

Friends were home in the US for a trip over Christmas and I was gifted a lovely ball of Madeline Tosh Merino Light on their return. It's a shade called Terra Verte. I spent a while on Ravelry looking for some inspiration and finally came up with the Tilting Tetris Cowl - I am of course not knitting it because it look's like Doctor Who's Tardis - simply because I liked the pattern.

I am happily knitting away on my new needles - my first pair of Knit Pro straight needles. I ordered a pair of 4mm, 25cm long needles for knitting hats and scarves and I must admit I am enjoying the lightness of the needles and the smoothness of the wood.

Those are some wildly colored needles! I always use wood for knitting because I'm not good at keeping yarn on and it slips less. I love the stitch of this pattern. It's going to be gorgeous!

Gorgeous yarn! I love the cowl I just knit, though would be wearing it more if we weren't having such a warm winter!
