I finished the Honey Cowl from the last post, and somehow cast on and finished a handspun cowl. I did cast on in the movie theater during The Battle of the Five Armies. I will say it was likely my favorite of the three movies but seeing how I wanted to light the Desolation of Smaug on fire and have no interest in owning any of them on DVD, I don’t think that means much.
The finished cowl has already been sent off to its new home with its matching Snapdragon Tam. So knowing I was going to sit in a theater for a few hours, I knew I would want some knitting with me. I had wound some handspun into a cake and decided to free form a cowl.
I cast on 110 stitches knit 8 rows of garter and then then knit st until I felt I was near the end of the skein and knit 8 more rows of garter. I ended up with about a row of yarn left which I think is pretty good. This looks like it will be a fun bright pop of color to any outfit in the coming weeks.
Now I’m off to finish a test knit hat in a great teal color!
