Barely Spring

Barely Spring
 and a few daffodils have appeared

We're looking forward to a string of warm days
so we don't have to drag out the sweaters or jackets.

Clear blue skies and white puffy clouds
are my dreams.

☼  ☼  ☼

My needles have been clicking and clacking.
I've finished the Honey Cowl
You do know it's a free pattern from
Madelinetosh, don't you?



Love this Malabrigo Rios yarn.
ABSOLUTELY smitten with the Azules colorway,
Great pops of luscious pulsing-purples.
Makes my heart sing.

May have to wait 'til December to get any time to wrap this lovely 'round my neck.

    1. You're right on both counts, lol ! ! ! !
      Thanks for the lovely compliment, Paula.
      This cowl is going to be a great accessory.
      It can be knit with any weight yarn.

  5. Another winner. Love the color. I see from the second pic you made the long version. Interesting stitch. Might have to make this some year. It was so nice seeing you model the cowl as well.

    1. Yes, Dianna, you can see on my Rav page that I co on the larger number of sts. Would rather have the choice of wearing either as a cowl or a scarf. Plus, Knitting Blooms March Challenge was to knit from that skein of yarn. This gave me the opportunity to knit up both skeins.

    1. Oh, Cyndi, you'd love our weather today.
      Just long sleeves.
      The sky is clear, blue and really cloudless.
      WE drove by a Tulip Tree LOADED, I mean REALLY LOADED with gorgeous pink blossoms.
      SPRING'S HERE ! ! ! !

    1. Thank you, Evelyn, your too kind.

      The Honey Cowl pattern is going to get a lot of use 'round here.

      It makes for great purse knitting and wonderful for gifting.

      Great way to de-stash so we have more room for new yarn.

      hugs

    1. I love the way the colors pop in this Rios
      so happy to knit with.
      Now, since we have not had a winter this year
      this cowl and all my shawls/shawlettes will be put away 'til next December. :*(
