It’s that traveling time of year. Like many of you, Carli and I are off to visit family. We’re venturing forth to the frozen North to make merry in a Utah winter wonderland with some of our very favorite folks. My cookies are baked, my packages are wrapped and like knitters everywhere, I had to decide what project I’d take along to keep my restless fingers busy.
It had to be mindless, because there’ll be movies to watch, conversations to have, games to be played and babies to hold – so interruptions will be frequent. Luckily, I ran across Mira’s Cowl in Ravelry’s top 10 patterns this week. It’s free until December 31st, a gracious gift of the designer. Happy Holidays, Ms Cole and Thank You!
This is one of those classic, simple patterns that can be dressed up or down. One skein of sock yarn is enough to knit this long ribbed loop. I love it in the designer’s gray, but I’m seeing it in an deep orangey red. I’m working mine up in Araucania Merino Lace, same as Ella Rae Lace Merino. It’s a light fingering, 100% merino. Soft as buttah! I’ll look forward to looping this one around my neck. Probably doubled in Utah!
Safe Travels, Crafty Friends!
