This was all the yarn I had left when I finished. It was yarn I had spun, and I did not have any more of the fiber. I could not look at the dwindling pool of yarn while binding off the project.
So, what had I chosen to create with this precious yarn? I knit the Good Luck Cowl. I still think cowls are funny, but I also think my aunt will enjoy this. It was a quick, easy knit, and I have another gift crossed off the list.
I show you the blocking cowl so that you can see the pattern better. Also, I have been immensely unsuccessful at getting a nice modeled shot. This also helps explain why I think these are so funny, and why I am unlikely to make one for me.
