Cornish Honey Cowl...

I finished another knitting project! This was the free Honey Cowl pattern by Madeleine Tosh, which you can get on Ravelry. I did the bulk of the knitting on a little family holiday in Cornwall, hence the name.
I have to say This is my favorite thing i've knitted so far! So much so that some people may be getting them for Christmas!
Apologies for the myspacey photo, My laptop is broken and so i'm making do with Piemakers Ipad.
The pattern creates honeycomb stitch which gives a dense waffle like texture to the finished fabric which is sooo soft and squidgy! Heres a close up. I did it in some more Artesano Washable Merino, this time in "sand."
 Its a lovely versatile pattern you can do lots of different options. I cast on 220 stitches for this one, and used two skeins, but the shorter version is half that. It can also be doubled and worn that way too!
Little house update, we have the keys and are getting it decorated, hopefully to move in properly in about three weeks, when the kitchen has been put in. Lots of work to do!


I love reading what you have to say!
