My local yarn shop has closed its doors.
I didn’t go that often, as I really couldn’t afford the yarn sold there, but I would go in for a skein for a special project.
I went to the closing sale a few times and bought skeins and needles for 40-70% off (oh, the lovely, squishy, expensive yarn I was able to purchase!).
I have finished my first project using one of the skeins.
I found the Traveling Cowl pattern on Ravelry and thought that would be a great tv watching project.
I thought I’d love how the Swans Island All American Collection Sport yarn (in Dew color way) would look.
I was wrong.
By itself, I just really didn’t like how it was looking.
So I started over and held that yarn along with Loops & Threads Woolike (in Teal Lake color way).
I was also right, this was a great tv watching project.
Except for the fact that half way through, I picked it up somehow and started knitting in the opposite direction.
My traveling pattern turned into arrows.
I love the finished cowl!
(this is not the true color…pictures above show true color)
I love the finished design!
Like I said, happy accidents!!
I loved this pattern and plan on making another cowl with another skein I purchased.
