Winter Solstice in the Snow

Pattern: Summer Solstice by Heidi Kirrmaier

Yarn: Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds in Brown BFL (8 skeins)

Needles: US 5 Circular

Notes: Kind of a different take on the original purpose of the sweater. I knit it in a hearty wool as opposed to a drapey, warm weather fiber. It took me a while to finish this as I set it down for a few months for Christmas knitting, but it has the perfect length and shape and fit. It was also a really interesting construction. I imagine I'll be knitting more of PiPi Bird's patterns in the future.
