Family Gathering

The Ghazal Cowl in my handspun/dyed Cormo wool is complete~ 
If you have never felt this particular wool, you are missing something great!
It is very soft and yet holds it's shape well.  The pattern was fun to knit and easy to memorize;  a good combination.  I varied the pattern repeat to my liking.  I worked this in a DK yarn on #7 needles over 43 stitches.  
 It measures 11" wide and 36" long after blocking.  It hangs nicely around the neck.
The cowl is going in a pkg to my sister who lives up north in the deep freeze!
We went to a birthday party for Will who turned 4 this week! 
 The weather was perfect in the low 80's;  the kids like hanging the pinata as much as they did trying to destroy it for the candy!
The sky was spectacular on the way home!

  3. Cormo is my all time favorite for next to the skin wear. I hate washing it off the sheep because it is so delicate but other than that it's a joy to work with. Your cowl came out amazing. Mine is still itty bitty.
