The lace cowl, Lara, is such a lovely thing! It's always nice when something simple is also easy on the eye! I knit it using an alpaca/silk/cashmere blend, so it is scrumptiously soft! 406 yards/93 grams, on US5/3.75mm needles.
The second project is Calorimetry, a headband which covers the ears as well. With nearly 13,000 projects on Ravelry, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. A simple, but very effect headband. 35 grams of an unknown worsted, on US5/3.75mm needles.
