Completed Knits for the Neck

I‘ve been working on these primarily during D&D games, or while waiting (in line for groceries, at the dentist/doctor’s, etc.)  Eventually I’ll get around to blocking Herbivore (pattern by Stephen West can be found here) but it’s even wearable now…

Once I finished knitting herbivore, I returned to a fun yarn that I’ve had for a while. I thought it would suit a crosshatch stitch that I’d used in a previous pattern, but I made a number of modifications so that it became the following cowl:

Completed Spiral Cowl

I’d picked the yarn for this up when I was in NYC. It’s baby alpaca, so it’s nice & warm…

Lumpy Bumpy Cowl

I’d picked the yarn for this up when I was in NYC. One skein & a lot of fun made for a quick & easy cowl…

Mare’s “Simon Cowl”

I promised 5 friends this year that I would make them a hand-crafted item within the calendar year. It worked out just so that I was able to give Mare her item for her birthday recently. It’s going to be nice and warm for her on chilly winter days, as the Mirasol Sulka yarn is a blend of wool, silk and alpaca.
