I've had a thing about finishing knits lately.
That is, I haven't been. Rosie's cardi will never fit her, one sleeve done and the other hibernating. My Shalom, too, is sitting in the knitting basket, untouched. Dinah's shrug just needs a button.
I'm not sure what that's about. I'm usually so good at finishing one thing before beginning another but the past few months I've been...distracted.
I broke my unfinishing streak this weekend, casting off my honey cowl on my birthday. Happy Birthday to me, because it's gorgeous and I'm in love. It may seem ridiculous to knit a wool cowl in April, but with the temperatures dipping below freezing yet again, not to mention waking up to snow this morning, I know I'll get some use out of it. You can find my ravelry notes here.
I cast on 280 stitches on size 6 needles since I used fingering weight yarn. The fabric ended up being lightweight yet warm with a lovely drape. Perfect for Spring in daffodil yellow.
I'll definitely be knitting this again. I kind of want one in every color.
(I apologize for the cheesy photos. I'm a horrible model and my hair is doing something dumb!)
