Actual Knitting Content

snowbird cowl finished onJohn's socks are still in the works. But I really wanted to finish something for myself, since I've been down in the dumps lately. I seriously need to: 1) cut off this hair! 2) get it colored, and 3) wear some makeup occasionally.


Just the finished project:

snowbird cowl finished flat

Specs:
Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky
Colorway: Snowbird
Pattern: Chickadee Cowl (PDF)
Needles: 10½

If I had it to do over again, I'd go up a needle size and make it an inch taller. But I probably won't do it again because I'm not a fan of working the linen stitch. I love the result, but not the process.

Wow that is gorgeous! And I agree that linen stitch isn't much fun but the results can be spectacular- especially with variegated yarn like yours.

I must have missed this post earlier! That's a lovely cowl, and definitely looks worth the trouble!

Completely unrelated (but the real reason I'm posting ;), I saw this today and thought of you :) http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/sku6853774/index.cfm
