My furry cowl is done and I just want to carry it around so I can pet it and rub it against my face whenever I feel anxious or stressed. That’s not weird, is it?
I used all three skeins of Sirdar Alpine and it is long enough to double, barely. It is very snug around my neck, which means it’s extra cozy, I guess.
I cast on 15 stitches and did stockinette stitch until I ran out of yarn. Though to be honest, I’m pretty sure it got switched with the second skein and the “knit” side became the purl side. Thankfully, it’s nearly impossible to tell, which is the one upside to knitting with yarn that’s very hard to read. I’m not sure I loved knitting with this yarn, but I bet I’ll love wearing it. I was right, though: I finished it just in time for spring, which officially starts tomorrow.
My emotional support cowl will have to suffice when I’m not home with my pups!
Ha ha that face! I love your new cowl
Ooh, new blog colors! I like, it’s pretty.
And the cowl looks great, too. I know what you mean about the yarn, though. It’s hard to have yarn you can’t read, but it does make it extra forgiving.
Also: Ravenclaw socks!!! 😀
Thanks! I’m not sure about the colors yet; change is hard!
I just want to rub my face on that cowl…it looks sooo soft and cozy.
The yarn looks like a nightmare to work with though LOL
It’s not a nightmare exactly…that Lion Brand Homespun is worse by far! But it’s not the best, either. Still totally worth the effort!
Homespun is so hard to work with…
What size needle did you use? Just bought this yarn the other day to make a cowl but I’m hoping to be able to double it and it not be super tight.
I cast on 15 stitches with size 15 needles. Good luck, it’s fun yarn!
