This was an easy and fun knit. Despite my earlier troubles with it, this cowl actually turned out to be the ideal project to have with me on the subway or in front of the TV. It kept me on my toes without being too complicated. The only real trouble I had with it was keeping track of the asymmetrical cables: one cable pattern was knit over 16 rows while the other cable pattern was knit over 12 rows. I had to have pen & paper with me at all times so I would know on which row I was working.
I haven’t seamed the cowl together so it’s currently in a traditional scarf form. As soon as I finished knitting, I soaked it in Eucalan wool wash for 30 minutes. It’s currently drying on a beach towel on my living room floor. The wool wash made it soft and sqooshy so I can’t wait to seam it and wear it! But, first, I must wait for the temperatures to drop. It’s been in the 60s lately! But it’s only November, I guess there’s still plenty of time left.
