It’s getting colder here so I decided to make myself a cowl. I liked a pattern called Rannoch Moor Cowl from the July edition of Let’s Knit magazine, I bought it when I was Up North in September and spotted the pattern right off the bat!
Last Monday (18th) I had to go to the dentist after work and as my dentist is in the same little town as a really great knitting store I decided it would be a shame not to pay them a visit!
I came away with a hank of this, Stonehedge Fibre Mill Shepherd’s Wool (worsted/aran weight) in Lilac. It’s also from “Up North” and is milled very close to where we go and stay, I like to use local products where ever possible and this is a lovely wool, 100% soft Merino Top, hand produced (raised, sheared, dyed and spun) in Michigan. At $12.99 for a 100g hank it doesn’t break the bank either.
And here’s my finished cowl.
And here I am, modelling said article on a rather nippy Sunday morning, around 10am, temperature was a whopping 16F, or -10C if you want the Celsius equivalent! It definitely kept me warm and is going to get a lot of use! Andrew wasn’t as warm as I was though and would only take two pictures of me wearing it before running back inside!!
