I am very lucky to have many great coworkers. On Thursday I was suddenly hit by a desire to knit for three of them. These fine ladies have all at one time or another helped me through a rough patch and I wanted to show my appreciation through knitting.
The first cowl took a while to get going. I tried 2 or 3 patterns before hitting on one that was just right.
Pattern: Cashmere Neck Warmer
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool in Crocus
With the second cowl, I decided to use two different colours which resulted in a delightful strawberry shortcake effect.
For Heidi (who wants to learn how to knit!)
Yarn: Knitpicks Palette held doubled (thanks for the yarn, Phoe!)
For my third and final cowl, I wanted something that look very impressive since I was giving it to my only knitting co-worker.
Yarn: Cascade 220
The best part about making these cowls (besides the look on my coworkers' faces when they got them) was that I used only stash yarn :)
Last day for the contest! Thanks so much to everyone who has sponsored me.
