Accurate color brought to you by Photoshop, which desaturated the awful yellow that was eating my picture.
Last semester I knit an owl hat out of the same ball for a friend, and I was pleased I had enough left over for a matching cowl (even if I delivered it months later). What makes this more blog-worthy than a tube of 3kx2p rib is how I finished it. I knit a purl turning row, knit about an inch and a half of 3px2k rib, and then folded and sewed the live stitches down. Now there is about an inch and a half of double fabric at the top of the cowl for extra protection against the bitter cold and snow (if we ever have any snow).
Here's what the inside looks like with my seam.
It was the first time I have done a turning row and seamed stitches down, and since I just winged while listening to a lecture about swine flu in virology, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'll have to do this type of finishing for more objects. Specifically, lovely colorwork sweaters that I dream of
during class in my copious spare time.
