Back after awhile with a new cowl
Hello everybody. I took a break from knitting for a couple of years but I came back this spring with a cowl. I didn't finish it till it was almost spring but we got SEVERAL cold snaps so I got a lot of good use out of it.

I hope this attachment works - I'm on my iPad. OK it didn't. I'll have to post from my computer.



I got the yarn and pattern from Flying Fingers in Tarrytown , NY. The pattern is Dillons Cozy and the yarn is Berrocco Peruvia Quick in two colors: burgundy and grey. It's wonderfully warm and not too scratchy.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with it except the stockinette curls a bit. I should probably block it.

Well I have another project I want to start - socks and I've already got questions. I'll post them in the other forum.

OK here are the pics hopefully. Nope, I'm getting a user error that I don't have permission to post. That's strange.

Ewwww-la-la! That is gorgeous--curling or no curling.

You certainly came back with a bang!

Thanks for persevering and showing us your gorgeous cowl!

Very nicely done and a beautiful color combination. Your cowl certainly would make the spring cold snap more than bearable. Thanks for the photos.
