In actual knitting content (don't die of shock!) this is the Vent d'est vent d'ouest cowl (East wind, West wind). I'm making it for a young friend who has a rare thyroid cancer, and is about to undergo some really horrible and scary neck surgery next week. I hope the possum merino will be super soft and non-itchy for her, will keep her poor sore neck warm over winter, and cover her scars.
The lace pattern is quite easy (I'm not a good one for complicated lace patterns, while I can do them, I just don't enjoy the requisite intense mental concentration to do them well), and the possum merino a delight to work with. The lace pattern will be more apparent once it's been blocked (I promise to post pics once it's finished).
And how could I possibly resist this adorable tape measure? I get to pull its ear off. Naaaaaaaaaaw.
Hope you're staying warm on this chilly "autumn" (more like winter of late) weekend! A good time to curl up with some hot chocolate, knitting, and a puppy on your lap :D
