So imagine my surprise when I saw this:
I adore Spring. Pretty flowers and a chance to wear sweaters instead of coats.
And speaking of Spring, remember that little trip I took to String (the yarn store) and I bought two really bulky yarns? Well, they became something. I borrowed some US #35 needles from Joyce and took that skein of yarn with me to lunch:
Here's the one I made on Tuesday past being modeled by Anna:
And lest you think they are the exact same cowl, here they are together:
The yarn is Riviera and each cowl used one skein. The needles are US #35 and the pattern is Kimbo, which I couldn't find online, but it's the same as this one, only I cast on 9 stitches.
The only problem was that my cast on row had 9 stitches and my bind off row had 17 or 18 stitches, so on the last row, I reduced my stitches to 9 and sewed the ends together, but you can do a 3 needle bind off if you wish.
The blue cowl went to Sanja, she was leaving for home this evening (she lives in London, England) and I imagine it'll keep her neck warm during her flight.
I think joining the Ravelry group 12 in 2012 was the best thing to happen to me. I can commit to 12 small projects in 12 months easily and I've already made April's project in March. I'm ahead of the game for once.
Now back to my sock.
