I've also received the pattern for the 2015 SAL (stitch-a-long) in the mail - which is also a pattern by Anni Downs (Natures Journey). The instructions for February are out - and I can't wait to get started.
I've also finished the first knitted project, but I don't have a very good picture of it yet.. But it's been tested! A morning with -10C was the perfect opertunity to test it - as you can see from the picture, I was nice and snug and warm in my new scarf.
Nothing beats homeknitted in the winter cold!
