Handspun Birds of Paradise

IMG_6117I know that I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy Natalia Moreva’s patterns and her most recent is yet another must-knit for my knitting to-do list.  After seeing Birds Of Paradise I knew that I had to knit it and in handspun to boot.  My project is not going to be mittens, although it is a mitten pattern.  Instead I am making another fun colorwork cowl because I’ve been on a real cowl kick recently.

I’ve chosen some of my own hand painted handspun merino from my stash and paired it up with some Knit Picks Palette in a nice cream color.  I realize that I only have a couple of inches knit so far but I am loving how it is knitting up.

What kinds of projects do you find yourself being drawn to recently?  Is it one specific thing or a special yarn/fiber that seems to be calling your name?  Do tell!
