Well maybe this isn't really a simple pleasure to most of you, but it is to me. Over the weekend I was thinking about my two projects left on the needles and how both of them are not for me. I also know that I have at least three more knitting gifts to make before Christmas if I feel up to it. So what do I do? I dream of something for me! I wanted a super easy cowl that is in worsted weight which would knit up quickly in case I do get motivated to knit for others. Ahem.
The yarn is Ultra Alpaca by Berroco that I picked up in Pittsburgh around two years ago. I was going to make flip mittens out of it but I changed my mind. The pattern that I am following loosely is the Purl Ridge scarf by Stephen West. My ravelry page is here.
