emPower People Cowl

With no socks to distract me, I finished my purple emPower People cowl yesterday. And I know we’re supposed to block ALL of our knitting but I’m not blocking this, so there! I absolutely love the squish of unblocked garter stitch and I’m going to wear this one as is until it absolutely needs a wash.

If I didn’t know it was 100% merino, I’d have guessed it had a bit of cashmere in it. I’ll definitely be wanting to get more of their yarns in the future. Look at those subtle color variations!

  1. I downloaded this pattern and my yarn arrives today. I ordered a rhinestone “vote” bobby pin on Etsy yesterday. I intended it as a gift but I might keep it. 😆
