sundara windschief

I haven't been sharing much of my knitting recently, but I can share the latest Windschief hat I made for a friend's birthday.


I used Sundara Merino Worsted, which I love to work with. Sundara's colorways are some of the best because they have so much depth and layering within the colors. I particularly love this glowing yellow-green colorway.


My red Sundara Windschief is the hat I wear most, especially after it relaxed from so much wear. So, today I started a matching red Windschief cowl in Sundara's Trumpeter's Lullaby colorway.


I don't know if it's the twisted ribbing or something else, but Windschief and Herbivore are probably my two most worn knit items these days. I'm sure that will change soon with all the new projects I have on the needles. How about you all? Do you have favorite knits that you tend to wear all the time?

Actually, I find myself wearing my Boneyard shawl most often! I wear it like a scarf.

There is an old scarf, one of the first I knitted, which accidentally got felted in the washing machine, I wear that all the time fore some reason. Probably that "it is already ruined so I don't have to be careful" feeling. But it is not ruined at all, just different. :)

Wow, I really love the color of this one! It looks great, I may have to make one of my own now. My herbivore has become quite a staple in my wardrobe...

As it turns out, I wore one of two Daybreak shawls each day until the weather turned...and now I'm wearing my Herbivore shawl to work most days, including today. In this season, it helps that my herbie's green. Oh, and a pair of mitts that I neglected at first, but with wear has become the best fit in my pile. You didn't design the mitts. The rest is all incredibly wearable, so hats off (and beanies) to you!

Great hat! The swirl does recall the windswept prairie, doesn't it. My most worn items are my lacy scarves, Ishbel and Damson. Boneyard is in my queue.
