Knitting Update: Cowl

Knitting Achievement Unlocked: Cowl.

Knitting Achievement Unlocked: Cowl.

I finished my most recent knitting project last week.  And it didn’t take two years like that never ending blanket!

It’s by no means perfect but I’m very proud of myself for actually finishing the cowl that I set out to knit.  I had a few false starts where I ended up ripping out the project and starting again.  But it knitted up amazingly quick – one of the benefits of using a bulk weight yarn.  I also really enjoy that knitting the round results in the stockinette stitch which is beautiful without any embellishment.

Still riding on the high of this achievement I’ve started another small knitting project – boot cuffs.  Hopefully this forward momentum continues.

New Knitting Project

I recently settled on a new knitting project.  I’m going to try to learn how to knit in the round.  I’m doing this with hopes of knitting a cowl.  The inspiration for this particular project came from the desire to knit something other than a scarf, blanket, or square and the beautiful knitted cowls that are featured on Outlander.

Here’s hoping this project doesn’t take as long as my most recent two-year blanket knitting project.
