FO: Beatrix cowl

I had forgotten how satisfying instant gratification projects are. I did indeed cast on for a bulky cowl yesterday, and I bound it off this morning. And despite a quick game of yarn chicken, I won with 1.3 grams left over!

The yarn is Beatrix from Juniper Moon and it’s like a cloud, it’s so light and airy. My LYS had a sweater on display, and as much I’d love one myself, I need to test the yarn and make sure it’s not itchy, since it’s 30% angora. Not sure what I’ll do with the cowl if it is itchy, but that’s a problem for future Bonny. The pattern is River Deep, Mountain High, a free pattern from MollyGirl Yarn. It’s one of my absolute favorite patterns. I’ve lost count of how many I’ve made.

Today is sunny and it’s the husband’s birthday. We have steaks to grill and I made my first “fancy” cake: a flourless chocolate cake. I felt just like I was on the Great British Baking Show, except I was so glad I didn’t have Paul Hollywood there to judge me! The cake looks good; fingers crossed it tastes good too. Hope you all have a lovely Sunday too!
