The end of school, the beginning of summer vacation, and summer work schedules always throws things for a bit of a loop around here. In the midst of the chaos we have created our annual Summer Dreaming list. In just a short time we have been able to check off a few things already. These are fun to make towards the dreary dredges of a winter that just keeps hanging on or right at the edge of spring and summer.We grabbed our favorite traveling water color set and headed out in the sun.
This fun cowl was on and off the needles before I got to take any in progress shots of it. This is the Apfelwein cowl by Laura Aylor. The yarn is from a local indie dyer called Holiday Yarns in the Batman colorway. It is a super bulky yarn that is so soft and squishy. The yarn and pattern worked together well for great stitch definition in this simple cable stitch. This would make a good first cabling project (it was mine). My favorite part is the shaping of this - it is narrower near the neck and spreads out towards the collar area for a more contoured fit.
