Kristi being the temptress that she is, had given me some of her fantastic super wash merino that she dyed in Zombies Treat the day that I kissed the sheep and caught the plague. It spun up so nice and lovely, being very soft and light, and just a big knitting tease. I let it sit on the coffee table for a couple of days so it could be admired by everyone one that came by.
Today I just couldn't stand having that unknit handspun here a moment longer! Before I even picked out a pattern, I wound it. It sat there with me while I searched patterns on Ravelry. I knew it wanted to be a cowl. Something with some texture that would show off the colors of the yarn. I finally came across the Mermaids Tail Cowl. There was a moment of shear panic when I couldn't find the right needles and then realised that I was looking in the wrong slot in the circular organizer. Before I knew it, I had cast on and the yarn was flying though my fingers. Only one pattern repeat left and it will be done. I think there is more than enough yarn to make another cowl, and possibly some matching mitt's.
Not the best picture, but I was so excited about it I just had to post!
Is anyone else counting down the days until The Walking Dead returns? We can't wait! Bring on the Zombies!
