London Cowl

25 Jan

Whenever I go someplace new, I like to buy a ball or two of yarn. It’s a more tangible reminder of my travels than some crappy little trinket that I’ll have to dust and then get rid of. Last November, I went to a cute little yarn shop in London on one of my afternoons and picked up two balls of Colinettte Point 5 Chunky Pure Wool yarn in “Pharaoh”. Dorky name, but cool colorway. I do recommend hitting up I Knit London if you’re ever in town; they were really nice and helpful.

The very nice lady wound my yarn for me, since it ends in tears whenever I try.

I decided that this would become an excellent big, chunky cowl. I used the super easy “Big Warm Cowl” pattern from Ravelry. It was so simple I could actually read and knit at the same time, which is a rarity for me. I think it took like three days of knitting to finish? Definitely one of my faster projects. Which was nice since I started wearing it pretty much 24-7. I don’t handle the cold well, okay? Still, I’d totally recommend this pattern/yarn to anyone. I might see about getting a few more of this brand shipped in, it’s really quite lovely and comfy.

work in progress, about halfway through.
