Seeds of Warmth

I love a nice big cowl.  Love!  I’ve always got some sort of scarf, shawl, or other cozy wrap around my neck.  I also love a quick project!

Enter Fleece Artist’s Slubby yarns!  It started with Slubby Blue (100% BFL wool), then expanded to Thatch (mostly BFL wool with a thread of dark Suffolk to add interesting texture) and most recently, Slubby Mix (50% BFL, 50% Merino).  Slubby Blue is now discontinued and on its way out, so I thought I’d give it a proper send-off!  I have two skeins of the Blomidon and two skeins of the Silver.

I used the Blomidon and Cat Bordhi’s Moebius Cast-On to start a cowl that will be long enough to wrap around my neck twice.  I knit in seed stitch until the Blomidon ran out.  Then I kept going with a skein of Silver.

I’d planned to use up all four skeins in the cowl, but found that the width using just two was perfect!  So now I have an amazingly squishy and cozy cowl, and enough yarn for some matching accessories (or another cowl in a different style?)!
