In the midst of several larger projects that I have going
, I picked up a ball of
. With less than two hours of some very satisfying TV knitting, I now have a very pretty cowl.
What I love about Magic Ball
is that each skein is unique. It's been hand dyed and hand tied to change color and texture as you knit. I chose to knit my cowl using color, Blossom. My skein started off with a soft pink merino, then a wool/mohair blend with slubs and metallic. A few rows later, the color changed again and I was knitting with an ivory mohair boucle then a pretty pink brushed mohair, and so on - all a lot of fun to knit! What I find so much fun about getting a small project like this is that it changes my knitting up a bit and re-energizes me to go back to some of my larger projects.
So, next time you are looking for a knitting "quick-fix" try this easy cowl pattern!
