(Cowl Posed Artfully on Weathered Adirondack)


I made a cowl!

I would do that thing where I take a picture in the bathroom mirror wearing it, but there are (oddly) no mirrors here. Who knows what my eyebrows are doing; I shall probably require a weed whacker and pruning sheers to tame them the next time I can look into a mirror. And the tetchy Lesbian Cop Hair is suffering too, I can feel it. I’ve gotten more than one quickly disguised look of surprise from the UPS man. Hopefully the new cowl will distract people.

It’s the Tuesday Night Cowl by I’m Knitting As Fast As I Can, and it’s free on Ravelry. This was a VERY quick and easy knit, and if you want to dip your toe into cables, this is a good start. I made the Chunky Weight Yarn version (with Grande Glow Baby Alpaca by Plymouth) and it has only 2 cable rows per repeat, and only 5 repeats. I knit it in 3 evenings while watching old episodes of Firefly.

An evening spent with young Nathan Fillion is a very pleasant evening indeed.

    Holy cow, Girlfriend! I printed that pattern a few weeks ago, and I’m waiting for the inspiration yarn to leap of out my stash so that I can begin. Also, Cowl on Grass is my favorite.
