I have had a very productive knitting weekend.

I finished my branching out scarf from knitty:


And this project that's been half done on the bottom of my knitting drawer FOREVER (it's cowl from cowl and howl in sNb, with no sleeves and the whole thing in the purl side of stockingette (is there a name for that?)) It's in casual cot'n from red heart, which is super soft and snuggly and pretty colored and CHEAP! yay!

cowls are fun!

And working on weaving in ends and putting buttons on my cardigan (a very modified go everywhere cardigan from sNb, with cables added, it's much more purple-y fushia in person). I like it! Too bad I didn't quite finish it in time for cool weather here in New York. I guess it'll just give me a reason to look forward to next winter.


hooray!!

All are lovely!  I really like the cowl sweater too.  That would be a great thing for me to wear to work under a suit.  I also like the cardi.  I was thinking about making a cardi w/ cables similar to that.  Thanks for sharing!

If you make one with cables, and you're adding them yourself, make sure you position them right on your breasts. I had to fudge the seams a lot to make it look like I didn't have a mutated chest cause my cables were way too far to the sides! I'm dumb!

Gorgeous, gorgeous and gorgeous!  Oh, the cowl is beautiful and looks versatile-- casual or dressy.

That's just good old reverse stockinette stitch!
The yellow scarf is just lovely - great color choice, and so nicely made.

Everything is so beautiful! I like your version of the cardigan much better than the one in the book, and I'll have to keep my eye out for that red heart cotton yarn. Great job!!!!

Thanks guys! The yarn I used for the scarf is I think called ggh soft kid--it's a mohair blend with a label in german. Everyone should make a branching out scarf! It's fun and rewarding and a nice spring knitting project.

Nice work!
I was just curious, how many yards did you used for the cowl minus sleeves?

Emilyflew--Do you mind me asking what size Cowl you made?  I've been wanting to make one, but I'm not sure on the size.

Thanks:-)

Wow!!!  I am totally in awe, especially of the scarf.  (The boy is more impressed with your sweaters, and is now asking when I will knit something "practical"  Wink

Thanks Messily! I would think, though, that neither sweaters nor scarves would be especially practical in your warm climate. Smiley

For the cowl, the size is pretty off because I had to re-do my gauge anyway (since it's in stockingette and not garter) but I aimed for the large which seems to fit my 35" bust well. Not sure how many yards I used, since it was left-over yarn wound up in balls, but I would guess maybe 4 skeins at 140 yards each? I think the yardage estimates for the cowl in snb are way over--I made it earlier with the sleeves but with no cowl, and I used well under 5 skeins of 200 yards.
