What's Up, Wednesday? How's about I show you what I'm working on every other Wednesday? Today I'm knitting a cowl for myself considering Winter is coming.. although you wouldn't know it by the 90 degree weather we've been having lately.
I am currently knitting a Song of the Sea Cowl and I'm loving it. It's one of the easiest patterns I've ever knit but challenging enough to keep me interested in seeing the finished result. It's also incredibly beautiful. I remember when I first saw it I was so excited about how detailed it looked when the pattern was so simple.
The pattern was written by Louise Zass-Bangham and you can see her ravelry designer page here.
The yarn I'm using is the Pagewood Farms Glacier Bay which is a hand-dyed fingering weight in the turquoise colorway made from 100% merino. It's not the softest stuff in the world but I absolutely loved the colorway. It feels like a nice and sturdy yarn probably due to the fact that it has 3 plies. I'm thinking it might not be as soft now but will soften up considerably when I wash it, and yes, it is a superwash yarn.
I have this problem where I only knit using grays but every once in a while I will knit using turquoise or teal. This particular colorway just so happens to be turquoise with touches of grey here and there, what a treat!
I hope you are doing well this lovely October. We are trying to stay out of the heat here in Ventura. I can't believe how hot it has been. For the past couple weeks it has been in about the 80's and 90's all day until sundown. Hopefully it will cool down by Halloween and we can finally stop just pretending it's Fall.
