Yarn Along: By the Riverbank...


  This week I am reading through my UK Country Living (the cover looks like it was styled by Alicia Paulson) and working on my Riverbank Cowl in Madeline Tosh Vintage.  The colorway is a gorgeous dark blue called Ink.  I've made two other Riverbank Cowls (Ironically, both went to people with the same name:  Katherine's was knit last January and Katharine's was finished in September.  For this one, I cast on 224 stitches, using a size 4 needle (32" circular) for the whole project (including the ribbing - the pattern calls for a size three needle for that).  For the ribbing, I did k2p2 for 5 rows.  I will be doing 3 repeats for the body of the cowl and then finishing up with another 5 rows of ribbing.  I want to finish this quickly so that I can wear it!  I have a winter duffel coat in camel and I think that the colors will look nice together.

What are you working on?

I LOVE ink! I made a Henslowe shawl with it and it's by far my favorite project from 2014! That cowl is going to be gorgeous!

I love the color of the yarn you are using. I love the American version of Country Living also. Reading means a cup of tea and some happy reading.
