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.
