Alarmingly Frilly
Published On: January 22, 2011

This is not a hat, nor is it a sock.  It’s not even a mitt.  It is, I’m happy to say, a cowl.  It is also soft, warm, full of lacy goodness, and a delightful shade of green.  On a less positive note, it also seems to be bedecked with a rather troubling number of cat hairs (from my cat of course, it didn’t come that way from the dyer or anything).  I debated spending yet more time trying to either pick them off or edit them out, but eventually came to the conclusion that this time could better be spent knitting (or brushing the cats and thus addressing the source of the problem more directly).  I kind of love that little flipped over edging thing that’s happening at the bottom and will be carefully blocking it so as to maintain it.  If I’m clever, I may even be able to repeat it at the top, but I wouldn’t count on it.  I’ll get a picture that shows off the design when it’s a bit longer.  For now you’ll have to be content with this one.

Oh, and credit where credit is due, the yarn is the wonderful Galaxy by Barking Dog Yarns in the color Robin’s Hood.  Suzan has such a way with color (it’s her yarn in Peregrinate) and this yarn is no exception.  It’s a total treat to work with.
