If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

FO: Bridger Cowl

I had a little yarn left over from the Wingspan (about half a Cake), so I decided to make this cowl with it.

This is the Bridger Cowl, by Kris Basta. It takes about 150 yards of worsted and I thought it would make the perfect thing for my leftover Cake Pop colorway. It's a nice, close-fitting cowl, which I prefer over the long, loopy ones. Plus, it angles forward, so you have a bit that covers the part of your collar area that the coats never close over completely. And that little piece of lace on the bottom adds a little extra interest.

It's funny, while I was knitting this I kept thinking how much I loved this little lace detail and the way it was constructed. It reminded me of something that I couldn't quite put my finger on. When I went back to add the project to my Ravelry page, I realized it's because I have several of Kris Basta's patterns in my queue. One of them, Gallatin, I've made twice.

So that should tell you I like the designer, right?

Details: I used less than half a cake of Caron Cakes in Cake Pop. Knit on #8 circular needles (because that was the size that gave me gauge.) Knit over the course of two evenings.
