Another Cowl

ilhiker's picture

Just finished my second cowl. This one is of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. I wasn't sure if it would help to soak it and then flat dry it, but it did even out some of the stitches. I wore it for the first time today and it did the job. You'll have to pardon my expression in the pictures. I look a bit drawn and dazed, but I'm just getting over a horrendous cold and sore throat. Ah, winter!

Another winner, Mark! It

Another winner, Mark! It looks great on you. The color is perfect.
There is nothing wrong with your expression. You could have felt bad, but it did not show. You look rather cool. :-) Feel better, and keep up the good work.

Thanks for your kind words,

Thanks for your kind words, Gregg. We are our own worst enemies. I work with 12 to 14-year-olds all day long, so I forget sometime that I'm not still a youngster! Then the old mirror test...yikes! But, I'll take what I have to work with. I suppose there should be some road scars on this 57-year-old face. Ha!

Thanks Millard. I thought

Thanks Millard. I thought the color was very warming. I have a reddish-brown (burnt umber for those who like painting pigments) suede jacket and this color goes with it very nicely. It looks more purplish in the photo, but it is really more brown. It's called Chestnut, so we'll just go with that. It was a nice yarn to work with and feels soft, despite the high content of acrylic.

I gave the scarf a good test

I gave the scarf a good test today and it passed with flying colors. It was in the low 20s here today with our freshly fallen 2 feet of snow on the ground and my neck was nice and toasty warm without giving me a still neck. Thanks for your kind words.
