You can decide for yourself what the FO stands for in this case!
I shared my socks on Friday, so I don’t have any to share today. I mean, I did get about three inches of a new sock done but that’s not very interesting, is it? And I have an actual finished object to share. This little cowl kind of flew under the radar. I didn’t post about it too much and it hung around for ages and then after my socks were done, I decided it was time to get this done too.
This is the Gris de lin cowl and I used my single special skein of Malabrigo Mora, which is 100% Mulberry silk, and the color is Sabiduria. I wasn’t good about weighing the yarn as I knit and I wasn’t in the mood to play yarn chicken, so I skipped the last pattern repeat and don’t feel the lack of it at all. It’s the perfect little silky cowl.
In exciting home renovation news: we have painters here today! They have been power washing the exterior to prep for paint and at first I was very excited and now after six+ hours of near-constant noise, my excitement has faded slightly. But as soon as they start painting, I know it’ll come back. No word yet on when the demolition will start on the back of the house, but surely it will be soon, if they’ve begun the painting process? All in due time, I guess. Maybe I’ll have a painting progress photo to share by the end of the week!
Happy Monday, friends.
Hmm. Love your cowl. I have a purple silk scarf I never wear because it rolls up on itself. I may rip it out and try in this cowl. Yours is so pretty.
I have another silk cowl that does tend to get floppy and rolled up, so it might just be how the yarn behaves. We’ll see how this one goes!
I posted an FO today too. Why not? I love your silky cowl.
AND yours is purple too! Great minds think alike, they say!
Very pretty, gorgeous colour
Thank you, fellow purple person! 🙂
So exciting that your house work has begun! Your cowl is beautiful!
Thank you, Marilee!
I love home renovations! Do share photos. The sound of a power washer is VERY loud. I love the cowl and the color is so divine.
Oh I will, once there’s a noticeable change!
That is a beautiful cowl! And I hadn’t thought about the dual meaning of FO Monday until just now… 😉
Mondays are not my favorite day. 😉
Love the cowl. I see blackberries and blackberry juice – tasty!
