Autumn Dreams Cowl and a Fair Isle Hat
I've been wearing this cowl whenever I can. That is, when the weather permits. It seems that Mother Nature cannot decide to be cold or warm, so I in turn have to adjust to the weather demands. There is nothing worse that feeling hot and flu like from wearing wool.
I love this cowl because of the fiber content, there's wool but then there is bamboo and linen. I love the drape, the "crunch" of the linen and the softness. I feel a pull towards neutrals and this cream cowl fits my current color desires.

One of my super secret not so secret holiday knitting projects is finished. I think the hat turned out swell. Of course I made a big mistake, strike that, I made a "design element change" of when the decreasing for the crown occurs.
All shaping is after the main charts, I kind of like my design element. I chose the biggest size and the biggest needles called knowing full well my knitting is super tight with fair isle. I am an aggressive knitter.... anyways, with blocking the hat is a good size!!
