Quince Owl Yarn Along
Ever since Quince came out with their owl yarn I wanted to make something with it. I always kinda choke when it comes to swapping yarn in a pattern. I usually don't match patterns and yarn well on my own.
I saw a cowl in MLYS that I loved. I could not stop picturing me wearing this particular cowl. So, one night I impulsively bought some quince and once it arrived I cast on 130 stitches and knit stockinette 10 rows, then I knit garter for 2 rows. I did this about 10 times. I then held me breath and cast off...would it fit?? I kinda wanted a drapey soft cowl. It is almost perfect. The color is perfect and the yarn did not disappoint.... I just wish I cast on 150 stitches...made it a smidge bigger.
And now I am on to another cowl...I wear cowls a lot here. They are so perfect to fit with the jacket that I LIVE it....
Eventually I will knit for another person besides me...but not anytime soon.
