However, a very dear friend is finishing work tomorrow to pursue a whole new path of marriage and writing and will soon jet off to England. It's the perfect excuse to knit something warm for her. She has lovely visions of sitting in a garret and spending her days with her note pads and pens. From what I hear though, garrets & attics can be very cold and England in the spring time is still considered freezing by Australian standards.
I had recently purchased some gorgeous Debbie Bliss 'Bella'. 80% cotton, 15% silk and 5% cashmere. It's deliciously soft and I was keen to make something using the two vibrant colours together. A cowl would be perfect for 2 reasons - it would be highly practical and I love knitting them.

The Lime and Peony Cowl should be a wonderful way to brighten things up should the weather take a turn for the worse - which it always does in England.
Good luck Danielle, we shall miss you!
