February Dreiecke

photoFor February, used the last of my Plymouth Superwash Merino Worsted to make this sproingy purple Dreiecke (pattern by Shannon Cook). This yarn is perfect for patterns you don't think you'll get around to blocking. The yarn really holds its shape. And, as you can kind of see from this picture, it has a nice sheen as well (especially in the darker colors, like this winey violet). Can't wait to get started on my March hat, the pattern for which comes courtesy of Amy Christoffers. I can now say I've won two giveaways -- a raffle for a movie poster from Titanic back in 1996 and Amy's Brooke Hat and Cowl giveaway at her blog.
