Oh, I finished a new scarf. Or cowl, more accurately. A ginormous cowl. I finished it a coupla weeks back and put it in one of my photos yesterday, in the outfit that seemed to have been the most popular with my kind commenters. (and thanks all, for your comments! I do love comments!) But the cowl hasn't been properly introduced here, so here it is in its own showcase post. I used about six and a half of the ten balls of Patons Jet 100% wool I bought at the beginning of winter, and after this and the Snow Bunny beanie still have about two and a half balls left, what to make next? Thinking maybe legwarmers....? Hmm.
Cast on 50 stitches, K2 P2 ad infinitum until one reaches the required length. Mine is roughly 175cm long. Then I sewed the ends together. Oh, and I put one twist in the scarf before sewing up, so it's really a giant Moebius strip rather than a loop. I like it with two drapes around the neck, but it's easily long enough for three drapes if I want. It becomes more of a big pseudo-turtleneck collar with three loops.
Seen on my walk this morning below: definitely signs of spring in the air, the arrival of the cygnets. I love watching the new batches of cygnets grow into adulthood.
