So... I usually wear blacks and grays and figured it would be cool to add a bit of color to my wardrobe. I left my favorite scarf (which was black) in a bar a while ago so my neck has been cold all winter. It's almost spring, but the weather in the SF bay area is sometimes hot and sometimes cold. Right now it's raining, but about a week ago it was beautiful and warm outside. Anyway, I made a cowl! I'm really picky about what goes around my neck, and merino is just perfect. It keeps me warm and it doesn't feel suffocating, haha.

Started with 2oz of 100% superwash merino wool. Dyed red, gray, blue. Spun into singles, and then navajo/chain plied into a squishy bulky yarn. Knitted with size 15 (10mm) needles.

The bottom two photos are just for silliness. It would look pretty cool as a hat! Tongue

My dad is coming back with my camera today so I'll be able to retake the blurry pictures, which were from my phone.

Added a better picture. I wish I had known about the challenge earlier! My cowl has no chance against a sweater, haha.  Tongue
