After a few false starts, I finally cast on a design idea that has been kicking around in my head for a while. I just think the right yarn had to come into my life for it to happen.
It's slow going. The right yarn just happened to come to me in the form of Reliquary II, a lace weight yarn by A Verb for Keeping Warm. It's 80% superfine merino and 20% silk and is just the perfect thing to knit this light, floaty, lace cowl. The color is out of my normal range but the Cochineal is the best kind of blush pink and I love the pairing of the color with the large, graphic lace panels. I'm excited to finish this project but I'm enjoying the knitting process so I'm taking my time with it.
