I'm busily finishing up some more knitted goods before Christmas. Two Cowls.
The first is a class I took called an Easy Cowl in Any Gauge from Instructor Teri at my favorite yarn store - Anacapa Fine Yarns.
The Quarter Stitch. I actually bought the yarn after feeling a little guilty since they "repaired" skipped stitches in my first knitted project that I was working on at the time. But, the yarn is brilliant. The colors are good with the stitch pattern the cowl calls for.
Knitted Top Post (before I acquired my vintage serger in 2010). Has this fabric shrunk? Or was I thinner? J. offers he thinks it really has shrunk - and that the result is not good in comparison to the prior result. It's possible I was thinner - I had just completed day 120 of P90X back in August 2010.
On the plus side, my yarn stash (remaining) has visibly diminished!
