This is the Riverton Cowl which needs only one skein, but I highly recommend that you pick a yarn that has a lot of loft as the stitch pattern really enhances a fiber such as alpaca or cashmere. I knit mine in Juniper Moon's Herriot which is 100% alpaca and 100% scrumptious. This is my first time knitting with any JM yarn and it certainly won't be my last.
Another project that seems to be made from magic dust is a 2x ribbed beanie which I cast on the other night for my girl.
I love that she still asks for knitted gifts and even though it's only days away from Christmas, I'm determined to finish this up over the weekend. I'm totally improvising here ... I decided to go top-down and am winging the increases and ribbing as I go along. It seems to be working (keep your fingers crossed), and I am absolutely loving knitting with Woolfolk's Tynd. Talk about dreamy!
And if I don't seem to have enough on my needles, let's not forget my hubby's pullover that I'm desperately trying to finish by the 25th. I'm knitting this in Malabrigo Rios ~ another dreamy yarn. Heck, I can't complain ~ all these yarns are such pleasures to knit with. Hope you're enjoying all your gift-knitting this year, too!
