Note: I have had this project done since October and this is the only photo I have of it, from Instagram and from the fall. The post has been written since late last year, but I needed to get it out of my drafts folder.
This was a spontaneous project, I saw a cowl Carla had made and I figured it would be a good use for the skein of Groovy that had been sitting in my stash for far too long. When I had originally ordered the yarn (we don’t have a decent LYS less than 2 hrs from where I live, so I order 99% of my yarn online) it came a different color that I had expected. It is a very nice color, but it was basically the color of my peachy skin rather than the nice cream I had been expecting.
After having it live in my stash for nearly 2 years it was time for it to be made into a gift, and I still haven’t found the right buttons or the right person for it, it will find its way to the right person eventually.
