Notes: This yarn is heaven. So squishy soft, so lovely- it's exactly the kind of yarn you want cuddling your neck on a chilly day. Too bad it's actually 30 Celsius (86 F) in these  photos.... but sadly it'll be fall before you know it!

This cowl is amazing- it's the perfect one skein project for a lovely little treasured sport weight yarn you've got hiding in your stash, and it's fast and easy enough to churn these out for gifts for everyone you know. I'm definitely planning on knitting this again- I can think of a few girlfriends that would love them, and it would be nice to have a great cowl wardrobe for myself during the winter months! We'll see. I've been true to my knitting goals of this year of gifting a lot of knitting so far, which I really enjoy.Here's some more gratuitous cowl photos!

And here is a photo of the cowl when it was in progress, so you can see how the stacked eyelets play out:

P.S- By the time you read this, we'll be either on the plane or freshly landed in Stockholm!

Lovely cowl. The color of the yarn is awesome! I can see how this would make a great little gift - but I would find it so hard to give it away!

I've never even heard of that yarn before, but it looks lovely! I like how the pattern shows off the colors.

Hope you are having/have had a great time in Stockholm!

I'm sort of falling out of love with variegated yarns, but this one is really nice and subtle. It'll make such a great gift. :-)
