Yarn Along

I have been a busy little knitter this week.
I am knitting my 2nd Honey Cowl and since I am familiar with the pattern,
I am breezing right through this one.
I decided to make this one bigger, so I cast on 220 stitches, the last one was 110.
I think this one is going to be too big, I probably needed to cast on something in the middle.

 Honey Cowl
Madeline Tosh Yarn 

 We went to see the Cherry Blossoms
and since we missed them, you can read all about that here,
I have been looking through this book I bought several years ago.

This year, I purchased this Cherry Blossom scarf...
the perfect accent for viewing the pretty blooms!

  7. My students that have knit the Honey Cowl have said the same - the small was a bit snug and the large was too big. Somewhere in the middle is very good!

  13. I have had that pattern in my ravelry favorites for oh so long but never had just the right yarn picked out for it! I don't know f there's such a thing as a too-big cowl; the bigger the cozier I think! Beautiful project!

  14. Your cowl will be just nice and cozy being bigger, for those cold snowy days!! I love it when you learn a pattern and are able to knock it out after that :) Your scarf is a beautiful accessory for viewing the blossoms, such a bummer you missed them in their peek of blooming.

  18. Usually when Spring arrives I put away the yarns and needles and hooks. Then, the snow and temperatures fall again, confusing the birds and the daffodils.
    So, here I sit snuggled in front of the wood stove under my not-quite-finished
    afghan with a good book and a few blogs. Looking forward to seeing the finished cowl. Aloha.
