Creek City Cowl

So, I'm pretty sure I need to get cowls out of my system because they're just about as useless as mittens to anyone in my family. I made this Creek City Cowl for Kai today, and I knew as soon as I tried it on that it would be too scratchy for him, besides the fact that it just doesn't get that cold here. It was 32 degrees this morning, but it's supposed to be in the 60s tomorrow. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, which is a nice basic yarn, but it isn't meant to be right next to your skin. My pictures doesn't show a true representation of the color, which was a nice, dark cranberry, so Kai liked the color. I told Kai that it made me very sad that he didn't like it, and he wasn't even phases. He said, "No, it doesn't. You liked knitting it." He was right about that. I'm just happy to be getting my knitting mojo back.

I quickly realized that my family can wear only one hat or scarf at a time even though I wish they would wear two or three so I could knit more of them.
If Kai wants a cowl try knitting one with the bamboo yarn at Michaels. It's very soft and not scratchy at all.

It is very pretty. I love those twisty cables.

Sorry Kai wasn't in love with it.

:) Agree- bamboo or a soft mix in cotton- it feels good to wear a cowl even though you guys does´nt get that cold weather...
The cowl looks very nice and I can picture it darker. Happy new year

I know how you feel. There's definitely the fun in knitting it, but you also want it to be worn. It is lovely, either way.
