F is for. . .

FICHU.

My winter uniform is black jeans and a black vee neck sweater. I have several of each so everyday, black jeans and a black vee neck sweater.

When it was very cold, I'd wear black wool slacks instead. But, you get the idea. Black slacks, black sweater. Typical urban armour.

To stand out a bit, however, I'd often wear a fichu.

The Shetland Triangle designed by Evelyn Clark and knit by my friend the talented Sonja.



The Forest Canopy Shawl designed by Susan Lawrence and knit by me.



I love these little shawls!

They don't take much time or yarn to knit up. But they provide so much. Warmth. A dash of texture and color. And it's just plain nice to wear something lovely and handmade around my shoulders.
