Wanted a patterned cowl for this plain grey yarn. The yarn is sooo soft, but a bit splitty. Can’t wait for it to be done.

dec 31 - frogging and starting over…casting on only 109 this time for a round of 108 (6 repeats instead of 8) because it was looking like it was going to be really big around my neck.

FROGGED and restarted cause I realized what a wimple is and it would be way too small the way it is right now. Casting on with the right number of stitches.

jan 17 - starting the herringbone section.
