A while back I was gifted a skein of Natasha’s wonderful sport weight merino, in my favourite colourway she has ever produced: Robin’s Egg. I needed a one skein project, and decided to make a pretty little cowl for this fall.

Pattern: Burnished Leaves Cowl
Yarn: Unplanned Peacock Sport, about 0.7 balls.

This yarn is soft but durable, and feels wonderful around my neck.

I think it has just the right texture for showing off the lacey leaf pattern.

I have some fingering weight in the stash as well, and I am thinking of making some gloves to match. I think they will go well with my white winter coat.

As usual, when the photo shoot involves my sweetie behind the camera, laughter ensues. I am looking forward to cooler temps so I can try it out without sweating. šŸ™‚

    Wow, you have been a productive knitter! I love the colour. Will look AWESOME with a white coat!

    Too. Hot. For Cowl.
    And in this heat and humidity, glove is a four letter word.
    Having said that….. nice knitting! And cooler heads will prevail. Along with cooler temperatures.

    Love it! You know, I have yet to make a cowl. A good idea for the fall…but definitely after this heat goes away!
