True to expectations, today is a bright, brisk Fall-feeling day—the perfect day to try out my Lace Cowl.
I find I like both sides equally in terms of design. And they are similar enough that you can double-loop it and twist it around to serve as a cozy neck warmer or leave it as a larger, open loop around your neck—closer to infinity scarf than cowl when you do that. The length is perfect for such adaptability.
It is marvelously soft, but I do find it a tad itchy to wear next to my skin—Alpaca does that to me for some reason. Still, given the chunky nature of the fiber, I don’t see it spending time next to my bare neck very often—this will be a layering piece, to be sure. I reserve the right to add a pretty pin, too.
All in all, a sturdy basic that makes for a pleasant project or ideal gift knitting. Thanks, Rainbow Yarn and Fibres!
Next week, we’ll meet this months Reader Who Knits and start in on Yarniverse’s Fresh Till Cowl—good stuff, so stick around!
