Recent Knittings-- a pair of handspun cowls

Monday, December 23, 2013
I've been working on expanding my handspun knits, of late. These two cowls are very simple, but they have a great presence! They're also quite warm, and very comfortable to wear.

This first cowl is long and multi-textured, in a mix of BFL wool, alpaca and llama handspun. The center portion is recycled, re-dyed thick and thin merino wool. 
This one is primarily a combination of two corespun alpaca and llama yarns, in pinks and purples--quite girly, and with a touch of sparkle spun in throughout. I edged the bottom in a handspun boucle. I love how soft and squishy corespun yarn can feel when knit up; it has a distinct texture that feels wonderful to wear. 
And: all piled up for winter in my studio.
