Pansies are a favorite garden flower, just because the colors are so varied. They always make me happy as a border around a flower bed.
Liene wanted a cardigan sweater. She lives in a wood heated home behind a castle by a lake, and kept insisting that she gets cold and needs something warm, thick and chunky. I knit up a wool, mohair, silk and cotton blend that I then machine wash wool cycle, so its a bit like boiled wool. Easy to care for, super warm to wear. My Liene sweater coat can be worn either side on top, I use a hatpin, brooch or belt to keep it shut, a hairpin or even a toothpick will work.
This is not just any wool, its from Latvian and Estonian raised sheep, spun in Pāce in a factory where no chemicals are used for washing, and their mineral dyes are as natural as possible. There is lots of lanolin in the yarn and you may find a few bits of meadow chaff in there too, its as real as can be.
