Wheee! Two blog posts and two completed knits in one whole week!

Darkside Cowl

My lovely friend Allison had a birthday this past weekend, and being the lovely person she is, deserved something that was squishy and warm and red. I knew I wouldn’t be able to crank out a pair of socks in just a few days so I decided to go with a Darkside Cowl. I love how defined the stitch pattern is, but yet is still simple enough to wear just about with anything. It was also a perfect way for me to use a nice yarn and be finished in less than a month.

squishy and red

Allison is also a knitter and appreciates good yarn so I picked out
something I hadn’t seen before — Elsebeth Lavold Baby Llama. LLAMA! This stuff is super soft and squishy. I’m a little worried that it might pill and nub up a bit, but hopefully the softness will make up for any of that.

Pattern here, yo!
