It's still summer here, and it is taking a toll on the knitting.
We are not amused.
This is the Good Luck Cowl.
We love this pattern.
The yarn is sadly discontinued.
Yes, I know. Yarn from Jo-Ann's.
It's a soft fluffy 100% wool (I'm guessing here) aran weight yarn. It was love at first
feel touch sight.
Thankfully, I was given four balls of the stuff, so I have enough to make something soft, fluffy and, yes, Carole, pink. I saw the Good Luck Cowl pattern last week and had to print it out. Not just because everyone and their dog is knitting cowls, but because I happen to like the pattern.
Even though, with my giant head, I knew going in that I would have to change the pattern a little. Big giant head, people!
So, after finishing the Oyster Bay Shawl, I grabbed the pink yarn and cast on for the Good Luck Cowl. Then I got bigger needles and cast on again. I knit a few repeats and tried it on. The color looks lovely on me and I think I love the whole cowl business.
However, it's August in the Sacramento Valley, so I'm not sure because it's HOT.
No, not HAWT.
Partly because of this, the Good Luck Cowl is on hold. However, part of me is thinking that this yarn would be better suited for a scarf or something. Must ponder while I wait for the weather to cool/change/become livable.
Thoughts beyond the fact that I need to stop whining about the weather?
I did not pick the yarn.
Yes, that's all I have to say.
How much can be said about a pair of stripy socks?
They are socks.
And they are stripy.
Oh, and they should be done before the end of the Summer of Socks thingy.
No, the socks are fine.
The stash is fine. A little confused, but fine.
Tomorrow, we'll talk about the stash because all I've got are those socks and even I can't have them done for tomorrow.
