Lucky Penny

22 Mar

  • Pattern: Honey Cowl
  • Yarn:  Tivoli (a silk and mohair combo)
  • Size: In between the two sizes in the pattern.  I wanted it long enough to loop twice, but still sit fairly snug around the neck.
  • My Ravelry Notes: here

The last of my Christmas knitting is finished and wouldn’t you know,  just in time to put the snap peas in the ground! I love the honey cowl pattern.  It just seems to move along the needles in a very soothing motion.  The stitches produce a waffle effect.  The first one I made, for myself, I used bamboo yarn, and since it stretches quite a bit it had quite a bit more drape than Lizzie’s cowl.  Dear Lizzie requested a rusty color.  I found this yarn on a trip to Charlottesville one day late this winter.  The yarn is silk and mohair so it knit up much denser than the bamboo, but equally luscious. I hope you still have a couple days in Pittsburgh when you need a little love around your neck.

This completes three of the knitting projects I wanted to get done this winter.  Not too shabby!

Projects done:

  • 5th Ave Cowl
  • Lucky Penny
  • Sophie’s Wyatt (still need to show you)

In the basket:

  • Eva’s Bluebell
  • Eva’s Clara Dress – this one needs to be completely frogged and restarted.  I have set this one aside until I finished some quicker projects
  • Sophia’s dress for the beach (a smocking project w. Joel’s mom)
  • a quilt I have been s.l.o.w.l.y working on

Well, there it is.  The list.

If you feel so inclined, I would love to see your list so we can encourage each other.
