The weather is chilly, but the knitting is fine.  I saw this pattern come out recently on Knitty and couldn't wait to start.  I had a lovely skein of lightweight alpaca that's been languishing for 5 years.  Little did I know this would be the perfect pattern for it.  Annis is very quick and so satisfying with just the right amount of lace.  This was also my first time doing nupps which are really easy if you've got pointy needles.  I'm so in love with this one, I've started another!  


In other news I am thrilled to have won a book, Simple Shapes, Spectular Quilts, from Jan of Be*mused!   Jan always has the most beautiful work, including this wonderful sunflower quilt.  Check out her review of the book here.  Thanks Jan!
