i finished this cowl… a little while ago now. sometimes i am a bad blogger, what can i say?
but let me tell you a story! it starts with this yarn, four(ish) skeins of which were gifted to me several years ago:
this colorway? not so much for me. but, oh, if you could feel this yarn! (it’s 70% angora, 25% merino, and 5% nylon) you would understand why i couldn’t give it away. so it stayed, languishing in my stash, uninspiring to look at but so so divinely soft…
and then last autumn, i was overdying a pair of jeans (still need to do round two with those!) and i stuck this yarn in, because a dunk to darken it up & mute the colors a little definitely couldn’t hurt it in my estimation!
and then it only took me practically a year to start knitting up the intended project! for an eliza timeline, that actually isn’t too bad…

i knit this up pretty verbatim to the pattern. i followed the notes to knit it up seamless and in the round. this pattern is fantastic! it is the perfect mix of easy to memorize and interesting to knit.
and then, of course, there was the drama of tearing a hole in it while it was blocking. but it’s all fixed and done now! huzzah!
