A friend of mine (who, incidentally, occasionally reads this blog, but never on weekends) fell in love with some sparkly yarn at the yarn store not too long ago, so I whipped up this cowl (my rav link) for her yesterday:
I held together a bulky yarn and a novelty yarn to make this. I must say, it is my first use of a novelty yarn. It wasn't completely awful. You can see the sparklies if you click on the photos to make them bigger.
Yarn: Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks Homespun and Dark Horse Twinkle
Needle: US 13 (9mm)
I'm hoping that this friend of mine likes it, and that it isn't TOO sparkly. We'll see.
Anyway, it was a fun, quick knit. I might have to make a few more of these for family members for the holidays.
Also, I'm mostly finished with Georgia's sweater. I need to cast off and steek at this point, however, I guess she can wear it once I cast off if she wants.
