My lovely friend Asti leant me a new book to pour over, and man is it a true joy :)
Loop is a yarn shop in London... a very, very beautiful yarn shop in London, and it sells the most beautiful yarns .. including Juno Fibre Arts yarn, which is hand-dyed by my friend Asti, and used for many of the beautiful patterns in this book - hence the lending of the book.. if you follow my drift.
Not only does it have some beautiful patterns, the photographs are inspirational too.
So I shall be picking up my neglected needles, and giving this a go... a gorgeous cowl... sorry you can't see it very well here as it is so dark, but believe me - if you saw it you'd want it too!
And - jump for joy - its a free pattern from the Loop blog, so you can grab it here.
Oh, and you can see more piccies from the book and lots of other Loop loveliness here too.
Happy knitting :)
