FO: Birthday Schmirthday Cowl

Never did blog about this one, sooooo yeah, here it is!

It's the Birthday Schmirthday Cowl, AKA Let’s Do Some Stranded Colorwork Flat in a Cotton/Tencel Blend… open eye, insert fork. I’d write down my notes on this improvisation, but no one’s going to want to repeat this. Trust me.

You see, every purled colorwork row demanded some chiropractic adjustment when completed, lots of tugging excess yarn across each float to remove the slack created.

Messy, tedious, fiddly? Yes.  But it was designed specifically for the needs of my mother-in-law and she's worth it.
