Sally shared her cute sweater and now I’ll share what I started at the Knit with Company Retreat. I fell in love with Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s Suke-Suke Cowl for its striking textural stitch. I chose a multifaceted colorway in Malabrigo Rios. It is a rich mix of greens, eggplant purple and browns called Canbombe.
It was actually pretty boring to knit, which is why it took me so long to finish! The tuck rows took an hour each! My cowl did not block well at all. The edges ripple and it seems to accordion and look a little floppy. All that said, it really looks nice on and I received a lot of compliments. Rios is worsted weight, so if you have a couple of skeins of hand dyed worsted yarn (~400 yards’ worth) in a stunning color, this may really showcase it!!
Even the inside looks interesting!
All in all I am very pleased!
As a sidebar, I did a speaking gig at the Minnesota Knitters Guild titled Anatomy of a Project: Taking Your Project from Start to Finish on Tuesday evening. It was really an honor to be asked, especially considering the caliber of knitters in the guild. Thank you, everyone, for such a warm reception!!
