this has been on my needles since last march! and i've been looking forward to having this wrapped around me ever since the first stitch. do you remember it?
i bought the yarn last spring at fibers west. and it's still one of the softest yarns i've knit with to date.
the deets? this is annie. by none other than jane richmond. when jane published this pattern last winter, i was in love. it's so squishy, warm, soft.. and luxurious. i had to knit it.
i seriously love it. and it's so perfect for our colder damp weather. i figure too, that it's nice for me to have something for me to come off my needles these days.. no?
this is baby alpaca, from knitopia. and i used a 3.75mm needle.... and i used just about every last inch of this yarn. there was no way i was wasting any yarn!
result? best. warmest cowl ever.
i totally recommend this pattern. it was super easy for me to just pick up and continue on with the knitting, no matter where i was, or what i was doing. also, it's the nicest cowl and warmest ever so splurge on that amazing yarn for yourself... or your very best friend.do it!
i'm in the final push here. just 2 more days until the owl designer fair! and i have to say i'm incredibly excited! if you're in the area, please come on by and say hi. i'll be there on the saturday! and then i promise i'll be making a much more regular appearance here in this space. xo i'd love to know what you're up to in this final week of november! xo
