Yarn: Queensland Collection Haze, Colourway 905
Needles: 3.75 mm (US 5)
Notes: I've had this pretty skein squirrelled away in my stash for a couple years now, just waiting for the right project. I don't usually gravitate towards cotton/plant fibers, so this was a departure for me- I got sucked in by the soft sandy shades in it that stripe very faintly and look gorgeous. It's earthy and lovely and I think I want more of it.
I love this outfit. But let's face it- it's the mug that makes it. Cowl is ravelled here.
The pattern- it's beautiful, but I find that the lovely scalloped edging totally curls after you've been wearing it for a bit, and the whole design is pretty distorted once it's been around your neck for more than an hour. Which could very well be my yarn choice. I'd be interested to hear if anyone who knit this in wool found that the scallops stay put better.
I still love this cowl, but it's the yarn that makes me love it. Just a perfect sandy, beachy pink. It's pink for people who swear they don't like pink, yet find that they have quite a bit of pink in their wardrobes. Like me.
