After yesterday's post, I was asked what the difference is between an infinity scarf and a cowl. The length is the difference. This is my distinction - please don't quote me as others might not agree.
A cowl is tight to the neck.
The Inspira Cowl
I've had fun going through pictures of our finished samples. Sorry, there are lots and I could show so many more. Cowls are fun to knit. If your tension is off a bit, it won't matter - it'll still fit you. They are quick to make. And you get to play with fun yarns. One or two skeins will make a cowl so you can try a yarn and then move onto knitting with something else.
An Infinity Scarf is loose and you can wear it long or double it around your neck. Both are actually called cowls (as you will see by the names below) but if I'm talking about them both in a post, I will use different terms to distinguish the length.
I cast on with Silky Alpaca Lace (6 strands at once from the Come Together kit) this afternoon to make a cowl.
80 stitches. Knit every row. Pretty mindless knitting which is good every once in a while.
Now to play on Ravelry for a few minutes. I'm flying to Myrtle Beach on Friday morning. A quick visit with mom and dad for the weekend. I need knitting for the airport. (Didn't you know that you get to start a new project when you go on a trip?) There won't be much knitting time in Myrtle - dad will keep me busy :) Unfortunately it looks like the weather could be cold so there won't be any golfing.
