Yarn: Cascades Fixation (98.3 % Cotton, 1.7% Elastic; 100yds/50g skein)
Needles: US 4/3.5 mm double points
Info: I designed the Runners Companion out of necessity. I couldn't find an armband that was both comfortable and functional while I was on my runs. This is truly a quick knit and one skein of yarn can produce two in size small. In all the years (four) that I have been knitting, this was the first time that Hubby has ever asked me to knit something for him.

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Peruvian Collection - Sierra Aran (80% highland wool, 20% alpaca; 50g/83m/91yds) 10 skeins, color #788
Needles: US 7/4.5mm
Gauge: 18 sts & 24 rows = 4 inches
Info: After realizing that I don't have very many sweaters knit for myself, I designed this one to be something that is casual enough to wear while running errands and dressy enough to wear while going out for drinks with friends. Knit from the top down with some shaping at the waist, I think this one is a keeper.
