Cowl - FO

I have a FO to report!

The Cowl, blogged about in my last post, is finally finished.

I like the sweater. It was fun to knit, didn't take long, and is very wearable. I'm also in love with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran - so soft!!

The only negative thing worth mentioning is that the garter stitch body of the cowl makes you look a bit podgy round the middle... It's not too bad, but I think it has something to do with the way the fabric drapes, the garter stitch, and the extra-large needles it's knitted with.

Project specs:

Started: September 2007
Completed: October 2007
Yarn: 9 (8 1/2) balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in red (300611)
Needle Size: 8mm and 10mm

Done! It feels good to get a project off the needles for once...


  1. Lovely!! It doesn't look remotely podgy to me.

  2. Gorgeous! I think it looks fantastic.

  3. It's lovely, the colour and the drape. Don't worry, no discernible evidence of podgy at all :)

  4. Beautiful sweater and it looks fab on you!

  5. Umm, podgy?? I don't think so! It looks fabulous on you, clings in all the right places and a great colour.

  6. are looking fabulous. The sweater is lovely.

    It's beautiful and you look lovely in it! Good thing your little one pulled that book off the shelf. :)

  8. Hello, gorgeous sweater... Do you have any yarn left of this color? I am in desperate need of one or two balls. I would love to buy them from you if you got any left over. Marlene

    Beautiful. It looks very wearable, which I think is the ultimate accolade for a hand knit.

    I thought of you recently, as my friend recently had a baby and called her Iris. Such a lovely name!
