I find working with the US 13 needle to be really hard on the hands. I don’t like Addis anymore - the cable is unforgiving and it doesn’t allow for easy movement of the stitches as you knit.
Liked the yarn the first time out. Found that, over time (and I received this yarn years ago) the tensity of the yarn has eroded. (It was provided to me in skeins, though not tight ones.) This time it was way to heavy, hairy and uneven. I’m happy to have finished this knit. Hope it blocks well.
Final pre-block measurements: 25” (for half the cowl) and 11.5” in width).
Gave this to Sandra for Xmas, with the half mitts, and she really looks great in the colour / style.
