For our February garment, the challenge was to sew something white, something beaded, or something warm. White and me are not friends, except in dogs. Even in my young and dewy days, wearing white near my face brought out the yellow tones in my skin in a sadly unflattering way. So I went for the "something warm" part of the challenge.
We've been having unseasonably warm (and dry) weather here on the Central Coast, but I'm always up for another cozy garment. This is a Renfrew, one of my favorite patterns of all time. This one is made from a mystery knit that I got in Nevada City. It's light-weight, but has a brushed texture so it's warmer than you might think, and very soft against the skin.
