Finished Object

I finished my 3 color cashmere cowl.

And it’s basically everything I like about a knit. It used two colors of leftovers, I only purchased one skein (the purple) to add to the mix. It’s cashmere and silk, so super soft. Knitting it was done in the round, and it was like a sampler in that each section had a little bit of a different pattern going on. It was easy to modify when I ran out of green completely. I love the saturated colors and the jewel tones and it’s just…it’s just my type of knit.

I am left with enough yarn to make another one if I just were to go out and purchase ANOTHER skein of cashmere silk. So, back in the stash the purple and teal went in case I feel an overwhelming urge to make another, adding in yet another gorgeous color for interest. I bet even a grey would look fantastic!

I also love that I could totally switch up the pattern, combining the colors even more for less of a pop and more of a blend of 3 colors. There’s just so much to love about this pattern!

What am I up to next? Well, for a hint, it involves this handspun:

(I think. Meaning, there’s something at the back of my mind that says that what I am currently knitting with is NOT this handspun, but it has to be. It HAS to be. I am a bit confused. We’ll see how it goes. In any case, it looks good either way.)

And, the designer is the same designer that designed this bit of gorgeousness I ADORED knitting out of handspun:

And now I am stunned by just how weedy our yard was when we moved in! Mr. Ink has really come a LONG way in that department.
