I wanted an easy project to bring along to the knitting retreat & decided to start this as I have not made one before.
At the retreat, another knitter was also knitting the same cowl in her own handspun & it was looking great. Both of us were highly motivated & wanted to finish the cowl before the end of the retreat I finished mine on the 2nd day of the retreat & it was gorgeous .....
.... I love it & it feels so soft & warm around the neck. I was glad that I use one of my favorite yarn for this cowl - Socks That Rock Silkie. The slip stitch pattern of the cowl really brings out the colors of the yarn.
My finished cowl triggered off a knitting frenzy as several knitters wanted one. Gosia cast on immediately & in 8 hours (around 11pm), she had a cowl.
Since the retreat, I have seen a few more finished cowls in the knitting groups!
