Birthday Cowl

Birthday Cowl

This is the Birthday Cowl.  Let me tell you I was in love with this one and I was totally enjoying the yarn too.  I had received a skein of the Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the color Burgundy - 41 in the Have A Cuppa Swap package.  I had never worked with Malabrigo and now that I have I am TOTALLY hooked.

My mojo for knitting was in jeopardy when I grabbed the skein, wound it into a cake and cast on before I had a chance to change my mind.  I think it too long to make but I was side-tracked with quite a few personal hurdles that sent me into tailspins often.

I would also suggest that if you love a good cowl that you should seriously consider this pattern.  It is well written and looks great.  And you can bet that there will be more Malabrigo in my future!

hahahaa! Welcome to mmmmmalabrigo mmmmmadness. I have a huge weak spot for their laceweight. Don't believe me? Go check my stash page. It's embarrassing. ;)

That is gorgeous. I have some Malabrigo lace in the stash, I ought to drag it out and use it.

It looks amazing...I have some purple Mal from the Have A Cuppa swap. Not sure what will come of that but I'm eager to use it (once I finish the baby sweater I'm making).
