Knitting a Cowl

Inspiration
During a moment of panic while I was weaving my First Time at WEBS Scarves, I believed more yarn was the answer. I stopped at Hub Mills Store in Lowell to pick up a few balls of yarn that went with that warp.
Later, I realized I didn't need that extra yarn for that project after all.
So I wanted to find something beautiful on ravelry to make with this ball of yarn.


Motivation
I put my started knitting projects in one place recently when I was cleaning up for houseguests. I realized I should finish something! This cowl project seemed like it would be quick and easy, plus the yarn is soft and gorgeous.



Goals for this project:
  • Use this extra ball of yarn
  • Make a cowl that's pretty and warm

Pattern: Lush-ious Swirl Cowl by Linda Frydl
Yarn: Princess by Classic Elite, Color 3432 (Majesty's Magenta)

What is it about the new year that makes us want to finish old stuff and use up neglected yarn? I have some cashmere/silk in just about the color of your cowl, and your post has made my fingers itchy to go do something with it.

The cowl will be luscious - great looking yarn and pattern. What are the other projects hiding in all those bags?

I'm just starting to use Ravelry even though I've been on a for a while. It's a powerful tool, and I love the color you're knitting.

Very pretty. I've been using small amounts of yarn lately, too. It feels so good to put it to good use.
