With a day of enforced rest today due to an altercation with a trailer resulting in a strained ACL, aside from a bit of physio and prescribed rest, I managed to hobble outside for a few photos before the sun disappeared for the day.
Stylearc Harper has been around for a while but I was really late to the party on this one. I really liked my first version, but being made in a relatively lightweight cotton knit, it was never intended to be a serious winter alternative. This time however, I have tweaked the pattern and made it in a really lovely merino lycra knit that I picked up from Lane Walker Rudkin when they closed down a few years ago. I have quite a bit of this fabric but because I love it, I am really careful about how I use it. I made a Sewaholic Renfrew out of it when I bought it and it remains one of my most worn items of clothing despite now having a hole in the cowl.
