FO: Arctic Circle

 arcticfo2 arcticfo

Long before I started working at The Fiber Gallery, I was a pretty regular customer - it was my main source for cool books and patterns, with the occasional yarn dalliance thrown in. One of those dalliances was this stunning green Fibre Company Tundra, with the accompanying pattern for the Arctic Circle cowl. The shop has a beautiful mint green sample, and I fell hard for the subtly textured design and the rich, buttery softness of the yarn.

It sat neglected in my stash until a little over a week ago, when I was itching to knit something fast. I cast on, and knit it in less than two days. It took longer for it to dry after blocking than it did to make! The color and shape is exactly what I wanted: the perfect jewel-green to wear as an accent piece, the fabric cozy and warm against the neck. This would make a great quick gift knit, and I expect I'll be making more of them in the future.

Happy Monday!

Thanks, everyone!

@Sharon, the colorway is called Tamarack. It's such a pretty, glowy green!
