Yakity yak

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.
Happy Friday!

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.

    Good thing you didn’t zoom in. LOL! It’s not too bad, but there are definite lumps here and there. Just makes it more cozy!

  3. That looks like a lovely project, and totally justifiable 🙂
