I bound off my Honey Cowl in Worn Denim last night and quickly blocked just before I headed to bed. I had hoped that it would be dry by this morning, but it needed a little time in the sun this afternoon before I could take the pins out.
The result is a gorgeous cowl that is just the right length (I have knit the other two shorter versions and this is my favorite length since it can be easily doubled)! It was worth it to use two skeins of precious Madeline Tosh on this project. I did fudge it a bit when it came to length because there really wasn't enough yarn to get the job done. I stopped the honey stitches at about 10" and then did the 3 rows of knit stitches and bind off with just a little yarn to spare, so I think that it was a good idea to stop when I did. Also, I used a size 7 needle instead of an 8 which the pattern called for. This was a fast knit for me (I began on April 11 and finished up on the 17th). If you are thinking of knitting this cowl, you should! It is easy and the result is so satisfying!
Wow that's beautiful! I love the yarn, and you did a great job. This cowl is on my 'must-knit' list. (A long list) =)
