Cowl Construction

After my big lace shawl was finished, I wanted something easy and on much bigger needles.  I did a pattern search on Ravelry and found the Infinitude Scarf. I already knew that I wanted to use Alpaca with a Twist in my stash.  With spring around the corner, I wanted to knit something green.  I picked this yarn up when I was in Pittsburgh.  I cannot remember when......maybe my sister will remember.  Anyways, so far it is relaxing just knitting and purling and not following a chart.  I know eventually I will want something that is complicated but for now easy knitting is just dandy.

This yarn is Mirasol Tupa.  It is a wool/silk blend that I think would make a lovely cowl or hat or pair of mitts.  I have yet to find which pattern I would like, I only just started looking today. The best aspect of knitting is deciding what to make.  I always buy yarn I like with a general project in mind then afterwards I decide on the specific pattern.  Vary rarely is it the other way around.  Unless I stumble across a lovely pattern that I just HAVE to make.
