Enchanted Cowl

A quick and easy cowl made from my “Enchanted” Corriedale handspun (Southern Cross Fibre Club - July 2009). The pattern was made up on the fly and can be found in the project notes of my Ravelry project. The cowl was knit at a fairly loose gauge and the resulting fabric is super squooshy but not too dense.enchanted-yarn

To finish up, yet another sweater swatch. This one is for a Duxbury Point Pullover (from Simply Shetland 4). Made from a cone of grey New Zealand lambswool that I’ve had in the stash for eons.

It turns out to be a perfect match for Jamieson’s Shetland 2-ply Spindrift. I’m in two minds about whether to proceed with the yarn I’ve used for the swatch or to spin the yarn for it using some gorgeous moorit Shetland that just arrived. Decisions, decisions.

    As always, you did a fantastic job with the jumper. Love the cowl, too. If you spin for the Duxbury, that poor lambswool will NEVER get out of the stash. :)
