Big & Beautiful

I have been living in an old pub in the northern German countryside for five years now. It was built in 1906 and remodeled in the late 1980s. It’s beautiful and I really love it, but the house is quite big (big enough to hold knitting events and classes!), so we only turn on the heating in the rooms we actually use – plus the wood stove, of course.

When I am sitting at my desk, I usually wear three layers of wool plus something cozy around my neck, and this big and beautiful cowl out of the soft and eco-conscious Aran-weight yarn “Big Merino Hug” by Munich based yarn company Rosy Green Wool is my new favorite: The reversible cables spiral elegantly around it, so it’s a little wider at the shoulders and narrower around your neck. Up or down, inside or out: just big and beautiful!

The amazingly soft organic yarn “Big Merino Hug” is available in Strickmich! Shop in 13 great colors, and we also carry kits. Shipping is worldwide!
