This month, the KAL I am doing centers around anything that will cover the neck.
As soon as I dyed this Teeswater/Coltwold roving and spun it, I have pictured it knit up .
I knit it into Zuzu's Petal cowl pattern. As soon as you finish an item in lace, it looks awful off the needles!
It looks like a big mistake! (This is the back)
But as soon as it is soaked, blocked and dried it blooms into its full knitted glory!
Now the blob of yarn looks like it is supposed to. The yarn is soft and even has a luster.
I like the look of a shawl without having to keep it in place. I hope more designers try their hand at this kind of cowl.
