Soft and Warm
It is nearing the tail end of winter, but the mildness of the weather belies the date on the calendar. Relatively little snow has fallen this winter; in fact, our school district has yet to log one snow day, indeed a rarity for Central Pennsylvania.
The weather doesn't merit a soft, warm, cowl, but I made one anyway. Eager to try this new book and this sale yarn, I knit a pattern that uses some twists and textures to add interest to the making and the wearing. It feels good around my neck, sits lightly on my shoulders, and has enough drape that it feels good wearing it, even on a 45+ degree February day.
