Moon Pulls, by Dianna Walla, in Lettlopi "Ash Heather" and "Golden Heather." The cream is a skein of Andy's Merino from the stash that I decided to use when I realized that the second lopi contrast color I'd chosen wouldn't work. (Value/contrast. This is the hardest lesson there is for me.) The collar and cuffs are lined with the oh-my-goodness-so-soft Woolfolk Sno. I may live in this until March. I want all the lopapeysas now. Shadow by Olga Buraya-Kefelian, in West Yorkshire Spinners Fleece, the very excitingly named "Brown" colorway. This yarn is dense and soft, and sort of cushy. It makes the cables jump right out of the fabric. Ravello, by Isabell Kraemer, in Holst Supersoft "Bleached White", "Verbena", and "Heath". I have knit and then unraveled two other Ravellos, and I almost had to do the same to this one when I ran out of white three inches from the end of the second sleeve, but my favorite LYS came to the rescue. We drove to them in a snowstorm, and it was wound and ready for me when we got there. Yarn Culture. They are awesome. This garment is so light and wooly and weightless--I think it would fit in my purse.
