Oh Dear! It's a Honey!
Honey Cowl, that is.
If you haven't heard about the Honey Cowl, the scarf that has it's own bandwagon, you can read about all the cowling on Mason-Dixon Knitting to get a bit of perspective. (Also, there are 9,483 on Ravelry. Really.)
Anyway, the knitters in my audience will recognize this story. My daughter's Christmas list included a request for a "blue infinity scarf". I had actually already bought a couple of scarves of the infinite variety for Christmas gifts by the time this appeared on the list. And then I was in Target in the weeks before Christmas, and they had just the thing -- only $19.99. But of course, not just the thing -- cheap yarn, visible seam, and well, I just couldn't.
Two skeins of Fyberspates' Scrumptious later (and that didn't add up to any $19.99, I'll tell you) I was ready to knit a Honey. And now it's done. And it is. Gorgeous, easy to knit -- I want one.
- Honey Cowl -- a free pattern from Madelinetosh
- 2 skeins Scrumptious 4 ply/sport superwash by Fyberspates, knitting two strands together. Color 309- Midnight. 45% silk, 55% superwash merino. I would have used yarn of the right gauge in one strand, but LOVE this yarn, and this particular blue wasn't available in the weight I needed.
- Size 8 circular needle
- I made the longer version, though didn't knit quite to the 12" width.
- 10 days, and I knit slowly.
