Something warm for Autumn.

I am one of those persons who is constantly cold. A L W A Y S!!
I often ask myself why I was born way up north, here in Iceland. To look at the good thing about that, it gives me the chance to knit warm and big garments, something that I love. Even though I am a small person, I do like my clothes on the larger side. It just makes them so much more comfortable.
I really needed something to throw over me. Nothing complicated, just warm and stylish. I found this pattern on Ravelry and immediately loved the super simple design of it. I have been knitting it on and off since the end of July and just finished, wearing it already. It is a BORE to knit, but I do love the outcome.

Pattern: #22 Cape by Lana Grossa
Yarn: Gjestal Topp Mohair and Eingirni held together
Needle: 6mm

I can totally see myself wearing this a lot. I choose black, even though I am not very fond of black, because this is something I throw over everything else and black goes with just about everything as we know.
