Navy State Street Cowl

I present to you the second make in the ‘Winter is Coming’ wardrobe!  [FYI the first one was this]  Yes..just in time for Spring, I finished up the State Street Cowl.  This was my first Quince & Co. pattern (although I didn’t use their yarn) and it did not disappoint.

This was a great straight forward knit and would’ve been real simple had I not unknowing dropped a stitch! Curses!! *shakes fist at the heavens*  This turned out to be the cause of all the difficulties I had been having up to the point of discovery.  After I frogged half of it (grumble, grumble) and started re-knitting it was smooth sailing!  Even with the re-kniting it was very fast…and therefore wins the potential gift pattern seal of approval!

I used beautiful and squishy Alpaca yarn from Juniper Moon Farm in Navy.  It’s a bulky weight- which probably contributed to the speed.  It was purchased from my new LYS- Yarntiques!

My only issue is it won’t fit over my shoulders- if you peruse the Ravelry gallery you can see what I’m talking about.  This is either to do with the fact that I didn’t gauge (#rebel) or the fact I have fat shoulders…. I’m gonna go out on a limb say it’s probably a combination of both :-/

However, I can do this:

The husband and I will be moving into our new digs here soon…so posting may be sparse- try to spot the difference 😉
