This project was a BIG learning curve, but fun too. It's not perfect, and there were some stressful moments while knitting, figuring things out--how to carry floats, making sense of color dominance, etc. A few weeks ago, I shared a little sneak peek of this project at its very beginning. I chose the white, grey, pink and purple color scheme to go with my puffy winter parka, which is silvery-plum, and other pieces in my winter wardrobe. I actually like looking at the wrong side, I can see my improvement with floats as the rows went.
I finished the cowl in good time before the Rav group deadline. And in time to still enjoy wearing this a bit while we still have snow! The cowl is light, but very cozy. The yarn I used was a lovely blend of wool and alpaca. Right before the Easter break we took these photos at Borre Park --a beautiful place nearby, and where there are several Viking burial mounds/graves, and which I have shared photos from other times...most recently in January.
For a long time I've admired colorwork knitting, a technique I had yet to really grasp. Thanks to this project, I've fallen even more in love with colorwork--now that I can do it-- and I’m looking forward to trying another, different project soon!
Just as the Easter weekend dawned I began getting sick with a cold--after TJ having been sick too--and so am a bit under the weather still... Hope to catch up with all of you more soon!
