BFF Cowl Complete!

Evelyn and I are going live with our completed BFF Cowls today!  Here's mine:


I actually finished it almost 2 months ago, in early October, and I put it on as soon as I did.  Hubby said, "That's really cool, the way those two pieces link together!"  He's a man of taste and discretion, I tell you!

I'm very happy with the way this turned out, and I've still got one more skein of the Lupin Cascade Cloud.  I'm planning on turning it into some matching mitts or a hat.  Despite a couple bumps in the road (my own fault, for not reading the directions through) this was a joy to knit.  Definitely recommended!

Here it is in my powder room mirror, as I was on my way out the door the day I finished it.  The light isn't great in there; the color is much more accurate in the above photo.


On that day I had to take it off after about a half hour - we were having unseasonably warm weather.  But now winter has begun, so I can start actually wearing it!

  3. Ooh, that is CUTE! Brb... OK, I've got the pattern now. ;-) I have no idea why I'm so much more drawn to cowls than scarves, but that does seem to be the case. Love it, and it looks great on you.
