Libby Jonson’s new pattern is a fun one. The only mod I can remember making is repeating the pattern row for the sleeve cuff a few times to make the little black fingers longer because I like them!

Tukuwool was a lovely souvenir from a fabulous trip to Finland. It is not next-to-the-skin soft for me, but softened a little after a wet block, but definitely not soft to wear without protection! It felt wonderful when knitting and has a beautiful rustic quality that wool lovers will love. I did.

The black yarn is a classic Rowan yarn and is a gorgeous tweed. The white wool was something unknown from my stash.
