This week has been all about instant gratification. Yes, I'm still working on the christening dress, but I wanted a quick knit. This, the Philly Cowl (available on Ravelry) fit the bill perfectly.
The yarn is Malabrigo (can we say yummmmmm?) on 5.5 mm needles, in other words, a quick knit and a warm, cozy neck warmer.
In an attempt to knit from the stash, I've also cast on for another cowl, the Willow Cowl (also a free download on Ravelry). I know, the colours are rather bright. It's cheerful, though, and goodness knows we could all use a little colour in the dead of winter, right?
