After the stash dive

This is a new one. I paid attention to the tightly wound strand coming out of the ball and didn’t think to go read the label.

I wasn’t all that long into the project when I stopped and really looked at the yarn running between my hands–and grabbed that Magnolia ball band: this wasn’t fingering or even dk weight. This was worsted! I would have used bigger needles had I known. How I missed all that… I can’t even blame the fever. That was yesterday, I didn’t have it today.

So instead of something light and airy for summer I have a warm, densely knit cowl that is definitely using up all 200 yards. The grams scale says I have enough for one more repeat but I’m not entirely convinced. I think I’m going to try anyway.

All that said, the end-of-ball spinning weirdness ended early on in the cast-on and didn’t hurt anything.

Nighttime photo butchering the earthy greens and turquoise aside, this is Stitches yarn and Stitches yarns are always the prettiest ones. The person who gets this is going to love it, even if she has to wait for the right cool morning or evening for it; we get lots of those around here, even in the summer.

Knit nonstop in the round. Because a rolling moss gathers no sewns.

I love reading you!

I’m sure this cowl will be loved like all the other ones are. 🙂
