Winter skating outfit finished !

The header photo is wishful thinking. It’s not spring or summer here. There are no flowers or even many leaves about. What it’s really like is more like this. Not quite as much snow though. We’re having ‘wintery showers’ which is a nice way of saying constant frozen drizzle. So I’ve had time to knit and luckily I’ve finished this one while the weather is still chilly 🙂

It’s knitted in Shetland 3/4 ply, in the round, up until the neck placket. The sleeves and toque hat are knitted in the round too so there are no seams.

It’s finished with braid and clasps to make a nice, generous neck opening and the toque has a little tassle.

Surprising who you meet in the forest isn’t it – and tame too 🙂

  1. This is a beautiful set Linda, I love how you’ve finished it off with the braid and the little clasps, which I can remember from my childhood, as my nana had something incredibly similar in her button box 🙂
    And what a lovely surprise that your Gregor should come across this tame deer whilst out in the woods!!! A very special day indeed for him!
