I love this time of year. The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisper, and it’s the perfect weather to show off your knit and crochet pieces!

The gauge is large and chunky, but because the yarn is an airy mohair and silk i-cord the result is light and fresh. Springen is worked flat, from the top down with increases and the center and edges. It has garter stitch for the main body, and a dropped stitch edging. I used a simple chain as a closure; you can also use a brooch, large button, or a shawl pin. Did I mention it’s reversible, and only takes 1 skein of Kid-Setair?

These lovely photos were taken by the talented B. Mae Photography at a local romney sheep and angora goat farm. It was so fun traipsing around in the wooly creatures pasture while avoiding the rain and trying to find the perfect light. We couldn’t stay still for too long or the goats would try to eat our clothes! We even had a sheep nearly lick the camera lense.

In other exciting news, yes that is a baby bump! I’m so excited to become a mommy this spring.
