Antonia Shankland’s Honey Cowl – © madelinetosh

I’m on a roll!

After a loooooong period of no knitting, I think I’m back on my game. Sure, I’ve started projects… but none of them have really gotten off the ground. I just finished a cowl for my cousin Carrie and that is a good start to getting my knitting mojo back. That’s right… I FINISHED the project.

So I’m continuing on with the Loopy Academy projects. First up is another cowl. The project criteria to qualify for the Loopy projects are that the item knit needed to be a cowl done in a multi-colored or self-striping fingering weight colorway. At least 175 yards needs to be used for the project.

After flipping and flopping a great deal, I settled on Antonia Shankland’s Honey Cowl.  Since the yarn I chose–Dream in Color’s Jilly in the Fortune color way–is variegated, I thought the texture of the pattern would work well with it. Since the colorway is a little oceanic, I’m calling it my Sea Honey Cowl.

I just cast on and am cruising right along. Updates to follow!
