Yes, it's another cowl - my 5th Honey Cowl !
Last year, I knitted one for my niece & recently she called & told me that she lost her precious cowl while back packing in India. She tied the cowl to her back pack & someone stole it. She said that she loved wearing the cowl & it kept her warm throughout her trip & she hoped that I will knit her another as she will be going back to India again this year.
I was upset that she had not taken greater care of the cowl & packed it away safely - who doesn't want a hand knitted merino/cashmere cowl ? It's priceless !
Anyway, I agreed to knit her one & so I started on my 5th Honey Cowl. I really love this pattern as it's an easy pattern to remember & knits up so fast. I used 2 strands of sock yarn (Zen Yarn Garden merino) with 5mm needles & the cowl was done in 3 days !
I also cast off Magrathea which is the same construction as Trillian. As I enjoyed knitting Trillian & it was given away, I had to knit another one for myself so I chose another of Martina Behm's designs. She is a great designer & I love her designs. The construction is so clever & the knitting is enjoyable.
Magrathea took me a while as I knitted it in laceweight (Sweet Georgia's Cashsilk Lace). I love the shawl & the yarn - it's so soft & light around the neck & the pattern is gorgeous.
I really enjoy knitting this shawl & may have to work through the other 2 patterns in the ebook.
