There's a poorly-lit photo of the Destroyed Cowl I mentioned awhile back. Took me about three weeks of naptimes at school to finish it - utterly simple stockinette stitch until the very end, when I dropped three stitches at each side, then kitchener-stitched the ends together. I couldn't be happier with the result.
The yarn - Sundara Aran Silky Merino, is luscious - incredibly soft, smells divine, and the color is so interesting. It's mostly a dark, dark purple, with areas that look almost bleached to a pretty, springy pink. A nice contrast to the almost-punky look of the dropped stitch ladders. I think this will see a lot of wear - it's so comfy and looks pretty darn cute, too!
So here's the details:
Pattern: Destroyed Cowl by Martha Merzig (Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Sundara Aran Silky Merino. I am so bummed I seem to have lost the tag, so I don't know the colorway name. Poo.
Yardage: 200 (I knit until I had just enough to seam the ends together, so I used pretty much the entire skein.
Other projects on the needles: I've finished the body and one sleeve of the Gooseberry Cardi, and a few inches on a sock I'm sort of making up as I go along....
Yards knit: 1050
