Gray Green Colored Cowl


There are times I amused myself greatly.  Taking photos of this cowl was one of those amusing times.  In the photo above I'm being silly with poses and laughing while doing so.  Simple pleasures!

I love this cowl pattern immensely for its versatility.  This time around, I used up odds and ends of half skeins of mainly super-wash fingering weight wools from my stash.


The main reason I love this cowl is because when the winds are blowing or when rain is spitting at your head, you can pop the edge of this cowl up and over your cold head and still have a very warm neck.  I've done it many times while wearing the first cowl during the winter. 



I enjoyed the challenge of using up scraps and getting creative when I was running out of mainly green and blue.  I'm an oddball in that I take great satisfaction of playing yarn chicken and winning through problem solving ideas.

  2. Great/funny photo and wow! The cowl is gorgeous. I made the sockhead cowl which is long like that, but just plain knitting. I love the textures and different patterns you have in yours - lovely.

  8. I love how this cowl sits on your neck and how it drapes. It's light but at the same time snuggles up good and takes care of your neck area and even of the front of your chest.

  9. The cowl is lovely. You played the game of yarn chicken well. Such a pretty combination from partial skeins. As I've mentioned before, I love a good scrappy project. Cute photo too. The world would be better off if we were all a little goofy now and again.
