Yet another pretty picture to capture your attention! Cheesy

Finished product:

For such a pretty yarn, it sure is hard to photograph!
It's a brand called Angel Hair and I got it at JoAnn Fabrics
I've had this yarn for at least a year and once I tried doing a scarf in stockinette stitch but lost my place and... gave up  Embarrassed
Then this week I decided to pick it up. I must have ripped it up about 10 times total. Mostly because I was running out of yarn or I made it too wide or too skinny. Finally I got the mix right and..... it wasn't long enough to be a scarf! So, I turned it into a cowl. Problem solved.
And there you have it Smiley
My first knitting project in a long, long time.

Thanks for looking Smiley

I think the garter stitch was a good choice! Simple, but shows off the colors the best with no curling!  Wink  Welcome back to the knitting game! Hope to see more from you soon!

You're far more patient than I am, but the work was worth it. I love the colors, it's beautiful!
