Accessories were popular this month. Perhaps this is with the onset of winter?

There were many bigger projects being worked and finished. Here are a few.
Marie-Paula finished her amazing wrap-over cardigan which has an intriguing crochet trim around the collar that becomes the ties. Why amazing? The pattern was featured in the magazine Rakam
which is only published in Italian. Marie-Paula cannot speak Italian but has somehow managed to decipher the pattern!
