A cowl a day keeps the wind away.....

Well, maybe not one a day, but started the year right with Thermis (Ravelry link). Wonderful, easy pattern. The yarn, Tosh Worsted, is lovely to work with, but it is really a DK, so it is a bit more slouchy, but hey, its a cowl! Knit with Addi, US 6. Used only 72gr. This pattern lends itself for a hat, which seems to be wanting to pop on the needles with some malabrigo, from stash!

And speaking of Malabrigo, Knitty City had a 3 year anniversary today, and here is the cake! Many more to come we hope!
Happy Anniversary Knitty City

Great cowl. I've become a fan of waring scarves and cowls to keep warm. A cowl and a pair of wool socks and you're all set for winter!!

It looks great on you! I think it is a very popular pattern among Norwegian knitters right now :-)

Nice! My daughter and I were talking about making some turtle necks, but I like this cowl you made. I was wondering how long and wide it was. Stephanieyarns.blogspot.com

Thanks for your nice comment on Ravelry, on the knitted cap. I found your blog and "ventured inside", - so fun to see that you were/are knitting Thermis's as I'm just about to begin. They look so nice and easy to do. Must just finish a present first. Nice blog by the way, greetings from Northern Norway
