A little brightness in the winter gloom

The California Dreamin' Gurl brought me two lovely hanks of yarn after a visit to New Jersey last summer. Smiling Sheep Farm was selling this beautiful handpainted 100% Romney yarn at a farmer's market.

This is the first time I've knit with Romney. It is bright and warm, a great thing to wrap up in after a turbulent day. I'll wear it happily for the next four years.
Pattern: Boomerang by Steve of Dramatic Knits with some changes at the end.
Yarn: 100% Romney by Smiling Sheep Farm
Colorway: Rainbow
Amount: 2 200 yard skeins
Needle Size: Size 7 (called for size 6)
