FO: Snow Cowl

by knittinginatree

Lake Vermilion January 24, 2012

With the start of a new year and a new beginning I’ve been taking a bit of a respite on the borderland of Minnesota. While my life is in transition it has been good to reconnect with some of my oldest and dearest of friends and to find them here, nestled into the familiarity of roads, lakes, trees and landscapes that are deeply a part of me. In the transitory it is important for me to have these touchstones. I’m very grateful to be here with the intention of being restorative yet present and focused on the future.

And, of course there is always knitting by my side. We’ve had a wonderful dose of snow and I designed this simple cowl pattern. The FO is reminiscent of the season and keeping with my goal for the year, I hope… In my rush to get north I promptly left my yarn labels at home. What I can say is that it is a silk blend with sequence! I’ll update the blog when I return to the city. But, for now here are some photos from my homeland and me with my new cowl. Let me know if there is any interest in the pattern, I’d love to write it up and offer it for free on here.
