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.
