I finished the Gap-tastic Cowl. I love it. I used Ironstone Colorchanges yarn, which I had no idea what to ever do with. But I am sticking with my resolution…using that yarn I have always been afraid to use because I didn’t want to ‘waste’..well wasting is letting it just sit and never be used.
I loved knitting with this, and as much as I abhor seed stitch I actually enjoyed it with this project, because the colors turned out so neat the way they changed as I went. There were sort of long color changes, so a knit-in-the-round cowl was really a good way to go. I knitted them on slightly smaller needles but cast on more stitches. I wish I would have cast on even more stitches, and there will be another cowl in my future, that will be longer. Probably 5 inches longer, preferably. It does fit over my head like a hood though, which was my main goal. I wanted something I could cover my noggin up when my ears felt like they were gonna fall off.
And PICTURES. Do you believe it?
Excuse the re-re self photos, but I had just cast-off and was doing a happy dance because I actually FINISHED SOMETHING. Love it.
