butternut squish

there's a no-more-new-yarn mandate here at chickadee central. after finally filing things down a wee bit, it seems silly to already be stocking more. so at least until the end of this year, all new projects will be knit with old yarn.

but don't cry for me chickadees, there is still some spectacular stuff that's been packed away and been waiting oh so patiently. like this squooshy skein that reminds me of a certain winter vegetable that is delicious roasted and delightful in soup form.

another quick and fun knit, this is the honey cowl from madelinetosh. it is knit in malabrigo worsted, which is always a nice thing to have on hand (the hat posted earlier this week is also made from the same yarn). the pattern is easily customizable and as such, a great way to go though single skeins that you might have lying about.
