The first FO of 2016! Whenever I start complaining again about not finishing enough projects, please remind me that 95% of my knitting is in fingering weight is it’s pretty much my own stupid fault. This cowl is knit in worsted weight and I finished it in under a week without even trying very hard.
Never having worked with any Brooklyn Tweed yarn before I’d say it was a good experience. It’s a shame it’s not so easy to get your hands on it in Europe, because I’m especially charmed by their range of colours. This shade of green is pretty darn close to my favourite colour, although I could’ve knit this in almost any of the other colours they offer and still love it as much as I do now. The first picture probably reflect the colour most accurately, but taking decent FO pics on a cloudy winter’s day will forever remain a challenge to me.
The pattern itself was a relatively mindless knit and is an excellent candidate for tv knitting. I did need to keep an eye on the pattern, but most of it was smooth sailing and it pretty much felt like it was flying off the needles. And I actually like it in the tweedy yarn! I’m sure this’ll be keeping my shoulders warm for still many hours to come this winter.
