A cowl just for me.

I recently bought some yarns off my plurk friend. Yes that's social networking like Twitter only easier to follow. Her name is Selana and she has a wonderful shop on artfire where she sells knitting patterns, stitch markers and this fab yarn.

She will happily make up any colours you ask for; for this project I asked for a blue/green mix. The yarn is 100% wool and very pretty.

Here is a better picture of how the colours turned out after knitting and blocking. Very nice don't you think?

and this is me trying to look all innocent in my new cowl. I made it a big longer than the actual pattern (by 14 rows) for snuggliness. The pattern itself is available free on ravelry (which is a free site for knitters and crocheters to socialise and get patterns and advice) We now have over 500 000 members worldwide so you're bound to find something you like or discover something you did not know.
