the cowl is done. and i used ALL 3 skeins! i better get spinning if i’m going to do a pair of gloves to go with it. the cowl turned out a bit wider than i wanted it to – the person i’m making it for is very small – but i think after blocking it, it should be fine. the person i’m making it for is also very sensitive to wool, but a coworker of mine suggested i line it with silk. i will post a picture later today.
i started a new cowl last night – the spiral cowl (another free pattern on ravelry). it’s for me. it’s more dense than the noble cowl and i’m making it out of my favorite yarn – Brown Sheep cotton fleece. it’s a blend of wool and cotton, so it’s warm, and not itchy. it’s also makes a nice dense fabric and it’s nice and slippery on your needles. it’s an easy pattern so it should knit up fast.
