I just finished a soft, toasty, warm cowl just for me. It's another cowl made from the free Georgian Lace Cap pattern. I've made several of these for gifts and I've been wanting one for myself ever since the first one. I love these! They're pretty and fun to make. This one is made from a ball of Cotton Ease that I picked up a couple weeks ago on clearance. This cowl cost me less than $3 to make! And, I may have enough yarn left over to make a baby hat.
I used size 7, 16" circular needles and followed the pattern, knitting 7 repeats of the lace chart. Instead of doing the decreases for the hat, I finished it up by knitting four more rows and binding off loosely with a size 8 needle. This cowl is one lace repeat longer than the other ones I made and I love it even more. It's a perfect size to keep my entire neck warm.
I love the color, "Seaspray". It even matches a pair of my favorite turqouise earrings...
The calendar may say "Spring" but it's still wintery around here. There are more storms and cold temps in our forecast for the next week or so. I think I'll be wearing and enjoying this a lot! :-)
