Then I went to Knitty City to buy some ChiaGoo needles and before I knew it, my knitting basket was full to the brim of new WIPs. I've got a new pair of mitts on the go, my High Plains Drifter is almost ready for the second skein of yarn, and I'm knitting the second sleeve on my Iced Coffee cardigan. Last but not least is the beautiful Fluted Cowl that I'm enjoying knitting (maybe most of all but don't tell the others).

It didn't start off too well -- I had to frog it twice before I got the rhythm of the stitch pattern -- but now it's the project that I don't want to put down. This one won't be as dramatic as the original Purl Bee version as I'm knitting with smaller needles (US11) and cast on fewer stitches for a shorter cowl, but I'm really happy with how it's coming along. I have a feeling that I'll be knitting this again, next time faithful to the original as I'd love to see it in its fuller form.
