Seaweed of Endor

I'm glad I saved up a couple of finished objects to keep me going through a few Fridays, as I have barely worked on my wingspan at all the last few days and therefore it is not finished for today *laughs*

While I was on my blogging sabbatical, I finished my green cowl...


I love it *smiles* I think this is the first time I have knit the same pattern more than once, but it's such an easy and effective project that having the same thing in a different colour felt like a good idea. 


Excuse the scrunched up arm picture - trying to get the whole cowl in when taking a self portrait wasn't easy *laughs*

As with the other version of this I made, I almost prefer it inside out, I love the texture of the 4x1 rib from the wrong side. It could probably do with a bit of blocking to help it lie better though!


And, because I think it is cute - as a hood:


*laughs*

I know I have bragged about the yarn plenty of times before, but here it is one last time ;)


These gorgeous colours come courtesy of yarn dyed by cunning boyfriend. He was so impressed with my first Kool Aid dyed yarn that he wanted to have a go himself, and this is the result. I love the range of colours and the way it looks, as I may have mentioned (a fair few times, I can't help it, I love that he made something that I could make something beautiful with *sappy smile*)

Ok, enough of that ;)

The yarn was named Seaweed of Endor, so this is now my Endor cowl.

As it is Friday, I am linking up with the lovely ladies at   Tami'sNatural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder . Have a wonderful weekend :)

  11. I love a good "I want to reach into the screen and nab this" project---I am seriously impressed by Cunning Boyfriend's dyeing, still, and your knitting is also A++! The cowl looks lovely, all big and squishy-perfect, and you wear it well. :)

  12. Ooo. I think I like it inside-out too! Having a reversible cowl kinda makes this a 2-4-1 project!

    I was thinking the same thing about my wingspan... there may be several weeks of little-to-no progress. ;-)
