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.
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!
