Honey Cowl

I’ve had two skeins of Classic Shades yarn in my stash for quite some time – bought originally to make leg warmers, then I realized it didn’t have enough ‘bounce’ and the results would likely be very saggy – and then the other day I ran across the Honey Cowl pattern and BOOM! I remembered about this yarn.  It is super soft and snugly  and the long color changes are nicely showcased in this slip stitch pattern. I’m making the larger size (220 stitches) and with two skeins the cowl should end up about 8″ wide. It’s also fantastic commuter knitting, as every other row is plain stockinette.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
