...and I'm making a cowl!
I decided to participate in a Mystery Knit-a-Long. This sounded like a lot of fun. You get a clue every week for three weeks and in the end you have a beautiful cowl. I purchased the yarn, which arrived just in time to get the first clue and start. So, I cast on last night and began knitting.
The hardest decision was choosing the color. I bought two skeins hoping that when they arrived at home I would be more enamored of one than the other, but I wasn't. I loved them both. David picked for me--the color name is Hobbit Garden. I love the bright aqua color, and the deep purple, which when knitted almost reads as brown. (I highly suspect you're going to see the other colorway, Currier and Ives, in a second cowl seeing how quickly this project is going to knit up!)
The yarn is called Devine, and boy is it. It's extremely difficult to believe this is 100% wool yarn. It's soft and springy and very round, and not the slightest bit itchy.
