More Cowls

Beth has been busy knitting. Mosaic Knitting has her interest right now. Colourwork but you are only working with one colour every row. You can read more about Mosaic Knitting on knitty.com.
Pattern: Autumn Basket (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Misti Chunky - one skein of a solid colour and one skein of a hand paint
Needles: 6.5mm, 60cm circular
Rasta cowl #3 is done.

Pattern: Textured Cowl (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: one skein of Rasta in the colour Anzules
Needles: 15mm

Pattern Changes: I cast on 42 stitches instead of the 48 that the pattern called for and worked four full repeats.

Do you need a stocking stuffer? Why not a bottle of Soak?
I use Soak for blocking all my knits. Pour a capful into a sink full of cold water and let the item sit for 15 minutes. If it sits for longer, it won't hurt your knitting. Drain the sink and put a towel under your garment. This way you don't stretch the garment when you pull it out of the sink. There is no need to rinse out the Soak. Lay your garment out to dry. If you need to pin into shape now is the time to do it.

Soak is great for washing all your delicates as well. And you can use it in your front loading washing machine.

A lot of yarn came home from work today. Two more skeins of Rasta and some tosh ASAP. I might think that I can knit faster than I really can. Just in case :) What if we get hit by a sudden storm and we're snowed in??

Beautiful cowls! I have been on a roll making them this year. They are so comfy, adjust so nicely to different temperatures, add style, and don't fall off when you're walking the dog. ;)
