First, on my needles is The Missoni Inspired Cowl, in lovely jewel tones.I was not very happy with that cream shade .

It seemed a little out of place.

So I restarted the same shades with a darker colour.

I think the darker shade looks better. Do you?

The yarn I’m using is Ashford 8ply Tekapo in 100% NewZealand wool. With my Chiagoo 4.5 mm circular needles. Have I told you all how much I love these needles. It’s my favourite these days.

This project is an easy one and the colour changes keep it interesting.

I’m trying to be all organised and wrote out the details in my craft book complete with yarn colours and all ! I borrowed the idea from Erin of Holland Handmade podcast

I’m proud of myself for starting to be more organised, people. šŸ˜„

Next is the Botanical Cowl by Megan Goodacre

The yarn I’m using for it is Malabrigo Arroyo in the Lotus colour way. I just love the teal and magenta, pink n bits of light blue . The yarn is so soft.

Then I have the 3colour cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli

I’ve frogged it and started over thrice already because obviously I can’t count properly .

Half way through the first time, I noticed that as it grew, it was also getting narrower . I couldn’t figure out how I decreased without noticing but it happened and I had to frog it !

So now I have all the markers on it to keep track . It’s helping but I haven’t made much progress.

I’m using the Rosewood Wool Romney 8ply in these three colours you see in the picture.Rosewood Wool is hand dyed using natural materials in Waikato NewZealand.
