have just finished this cowl which I made for my sister – (sorry if you’re reading this Vole – I kind of assumed that you dont read my blog on a regular basis) for her birthday next week. It’s made from Paloma yarn and in her favourite colour – purple. I made it using circular needles which is so much easier as there are no ends to sew together, but also it really seems to grow quicker… Not sure why…

Anyway, hopefully she will love it. I have been product testing it this morning because my heating is broken and it’s been keeping me lovely and warm. I also think that most people are going to get these for Christmas as I have no money left to spend on presents… Not sure what to give the boys though…

I have written up the pattern and it is now available on the site.

I finished making this cowl in Perla 80% cashmere 2 days ago and haven’t taken it off since. It is without a doubt the most luxurious, snuggly, delicious and warm item I own. I changed the pattern slightly – partly because I rarely make anything exactly the same twice, but also because I wanted it to fit more closely around the neck – because it’s cashmere you can wear it next to the skin without it itching. I also knitted a 2:2:2 plait rather than a 3:3 cable, but the basic pattern is the same. I have written up the amendments on the pattern to so if you download it you will be able to see the changes.

This is the finished result – awful pic of me but my self timer wasn’t working ! Because of the marl it’s hard to see the detail in these photographs but in real life it’s very clear.
