This week I've brought out an oldie but goodie. I finished the tangled yoke cardigan back in 2009 and I still wear it pretty often during the winter. I knit it out of some alpaca yarn I bought at Rhinebeck and it has held up amazingly well.
I panic-bought some shearling mittens because the temps were hovering around 0 for awhile. One night I took Daisy for her night walk and by the time I had gotten around the block my hands were so cold that I literally couldn't feel them anymore. These are thick and warm but quite bulky so they aren't the most practical mittens. They'll be nice for those super cold days though, as long as Penny doesn't destroy them first.
