Pattern: Cream and Sugar Cowl
Yarn: Shibui Knits Sock, in 'Wasabi'
Needles: 3.5 mm (US 4)
Give me all your yarnz!!
Notes: I didn't make any modifications, and really enjoyed knitting this for the second time. It's one of those great gift knitting patterns- quick, one skein, and easy to churn out quickly. My friend Andrea saw the previous cowl and wanted one, so I happily obliged. I have some of the yarn leftover, I'm going to make her some fingerless mitts as well. Not that she needs either of those items right now- it's hot. Like, your skin feels like sticky toffee hot. But no matter how hot is it right now, fall always comes around again.
Why yes, I did put on a wool cowl and a winter coat to model this for you in the dead heat of June.
I'm working away at this cardigan for my mom, as an overdue Mother's Day gift. I actually ran out of yarn (totally my own fault- I keep all my white/cream yarns together in one box, and thought I had more of this yarn than I really did) but fortunately a fellow Raveler came to my rescue and sent me the single skein I needed to get this completed.
I'm also working on another version of my Grapefruit Cowl, this time making it bigger, for more of a fall weather cowl. Maybe because I've knit this stitch so much, but I find the pattern really easy to memorize, so I just pick it up and chip away at it whenever I get a chance. It's almost done- just need to drop the stitches!
