A soft, warm cowl and a beautiful spring day!

It is gorgeous outside today. We just took a walk - it is 55 degrees! You can see the snow is slowly leaving our backyard.

Spring is really coming!

I made Ray a cowl but it may be next year before he wears it - and that is fine with me! The Voss Cowl pattern is by Jeffrey Wall of The Yarn Guys.  The yarn is Tumi by Rauma, a Norwegian yarn that The Yarn Guys carry at their store, Wall of Yarn.

I knit the cowl on a 12" circular needle so I made a tube. Then I had to join the ends using the kitchener stitch, a first for me. It was a learning curve but I think I have it now!

The cowl is soft and warm - perfect for NEXT winter!


  1. Beautiful job! Hopefully he won't need it until December (snow for Christmas!).

  2. Wow, I love that cowl! I'm hoping he won't need it until at least next December. ;-)

  3. That is a really beautiful cowl! You do some lovely knitting!
