FO: Colvert Cowl

My Jazzercise mentor Linda is really awesome and has been super helpful to me this last year.  I decided to make her a cowl for Christmas.  I used one of my most recently purchased yarns for it.

Rav page here.

Pattern: Colvert by KatyTricot

Yarn: Twist Icicle, 95% baby llama, 5% stellina, about 200 yds of worsted

Needles: US 8 circulars

Start Date: December 21, 2012

Finish Date: December 25, 2012

Mods: none.  I bound off purlwise.  It wasn’t specified in the pattern.  I blocked the points of the cowl out, though they didn’t really stay that way.  The yarn is pretty loose and drapey.

These infinity cowls are nice because you can wear them like a long loop or doubled up.  Some versatility.  Here’s a close-up of the sparkles:

I hope that Linda will wear it.  I made her a shawl when I was first certified.  She seemed to really like it, but I’ve never seen her not in aerobics clothes.  Oh, that shawl was during my huge blog break, so here it is:

It is the Winterthaw pattern, and my rav page is here.

I am excited to do a photo wrap-up post of my holiday vacation.  Maybe once I get all my pictures uploaded.
