FO: Wicked

wicked 003

wicked 004

Pattern: Wicked from Zephyr Style
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, Visual Purple
Mods: I skipped the seed stitch and repeated the cable pattern for the hem. I also left off the pocket.



Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! I finished this sweater about 2 weeks ago, but with the holiday and traveling, I'm just getting around to blogging about it. This was a pretty quick and enjoyable knit for me. Easy to follow pattern and easy to modify. I'm pretty happy with it and will probably knit another one at some point, maybe in cotton for warmer months.

Cowl is the new scarf

Yeah, I know I'm late to the party, but I'm having a cowl obsession. I've knit 3 in the past few weeks:

Alpaca Cowl
Alpaca cowl in Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky

Noro Cowl
Gloria Cowl in Noro Silk Garden

Birthday Cowl
Birthday Cowl in Malabrigo

I knit each of these in less that a day! Cowls are great for leftover single skeins and fill that need for a quick finished project. I knit these with the intention of giving them away as Christmas gifts, but now I want to keep them for myself. Luckily I have more waiting in my Ravelry queue!
