Lady Hannah

A cowl inspired by my obsession, Downton Abbey? Yes Please.
pattern by the multi-talented Shannon of luvinthemommyhood
The yarn is the sproingy, hand-dyed goodness of Sweet Fiber Cashmerino Sport. I had a skein left over from the Rustic Shawl  which I ended up giving away. It was time to make something happen with this yarn - perfect match in my opinion!

The lace pattern is simple and I was able to memorize it by the second repeat. It's good and bad that I've reached a stage in my knitting life that I can recover mistakes (the bad being that I still make mistakes, haha).

I love how the lace is a sharp design but the fabric came out squooshy and lovely. 
Reminds me of  Lady Mary...a tough cookie with a heart of gold.
I named it Lady Hannah, though, because it's MINE all mine. 
I'm happy to report the girls are doing well.
Having tea parties on the playground.
and just being darn cute in general.
Happy Friday everyone!
