Jetsetter

I cast on a new cowl project last night. I had two rows of the moss stitch finished when I went to bed. The plan was to work on it at work today.
Pattern: Jetsetter (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 1 ball of Freia Bulky
Needles: 12mm, 60cm circular

It was a very good plan until I forgot it this morning. What was I going to do in the store? I was tempted to wind a skein of yarn and start something else but instead I finished Holi Party.
Finished. All ends sewn in. We just need to add the buttons. Then Beth went to the golf course (passing by the store) so she dropped off the cowl and I'm about half way finished.

The pattern for Holi Party is very well written and easy to follow. There are some wrap and turns but they are not difficult and I think that if you watch a how to video you can master them pretty easily.

Yes, I'm a bit obsessed with bulky yarns right now. That is going to change this week. I'm going to be choosing between Mechita, Jilly with Cashmere and Fiberstory Fave Sock for my next project. Talk about going from one extreme to the other.

I really like that sweater for layering! In three weeks we'll be leaving the warmth of the Caribbean to head home to Fall in Ohio. I so look forward to wearing sweaters again.

All the best from Port Canaveral - the only place I can log into the Internet like a civilized person (using my personal Verizon connection) all week!
