I have been in a scarf/cowl knitting frenzy for a couple months, mostly because there is such luscious yarn to work with! I have mentioned my “Dark Side of the Moon” scarf, from the rainbow colorway by Must Stash Yarns: I used a simple pattern to knit a garter stitch scarf which lets the yarn shine.
Next was the Bar Hopping Cowl in a limited edition Lorna’s Laces colorway inspired by Frozen.
The most recent finish was a moebius cowl using a pattern by Cat Bordhi. This was a gift for a fellow math teacher. I used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, which is deliciously soft. With 47″ needles, the circumference of the cowl is only about 15″.
I do have another shawl on the needles. My daughter’s group was invited to take their skating show to a nearby town for a performance on New Year’s Eve, and that means rehearsals every day between now and then. Prime knitting time for mom! I grabbed a skein of multi-colored sock yarn which is turning into a pretty hideous shawl. A reminder for the new year: Life is too short to knit with ugly yarn!
