I finished that grey cowl, and I also finished a project from the hibernating WIP box – so I felt justified in casting on a new project last night.
This is a Pretty Thing cowl, which I am knitting in yak – my son bought me two ounces of the fiber and I spun it into 168 yards of fingering weight yarn. It should be just enough for the cowl. The yak fiber was challenging for me to spin, but it’s got a nice feel – soft with a little heft. I was unsure if my uneven spinning would work in this lace pattern, but I think it’s going just fine.
