I love this cowl. It was such a long process, but I really love that. I can see why it would be fun to make a Farmer’s Wife quilt or a sampler quilt now. Just dedicate a few minutes each day to a project and after several weeks or months you’ll have something you truly cherish. I cast on this cowl in the beginning of September. I had the yarn (Madelinetosh in Thunderstorm) all set to go for a while, but really just got the motivation to start up on it.
It’s the long version of the Honey Cowl, and I modified the edging just like Angela (she’s one of my knitting idols, yes, I have more than one, and yes, it’s okay). I would only do maybe 3 rows a night while sitting on the couch or next to the kids in the bathtub. Things get a little obnoxious when you knit and the kids are in the tub, they do all sorts of ‘creative’ non-sense in there. I love that it’s squishy and soft and I can wear it as much as I want. Somehow having a cowl on makes you: 1. warmer and 2. sophisticated looking without all the work. Yep, that’ll work.
Next up I’m making another hat, can’t have enough hats in Wisconsin in winter! No way. Thanks for putting up with my knitting posts! I really enjoy doing it and it really feels so different than sewing – in a good way!
