Oh HEY. It's mid-November, we have no snow, and I'm dreaming of a day chilly enough when I can appropriately wear heavy wool accessories. It hasn't happened yet.
But a girl can pretend, right? With this white fluff, how could you not? I am pretty obsessed with knitting things in this ridiculously large gauge. My needles (size 50) are hilariously big for my hands, my cat keeps trying to eat the long fibers from the roving, and these projects get HEAVY after a while. But how fun is this outcome?
To make this, I used Knitpicks' peruvian wool roving, and my aforementioned size 50 circular knitting needles, which I got from Amazon. I split the roving into 25 gram pieces and lightly twisted it for strength. It is so fun to watch this fabric grow! I plan to make more, so I'll probably put a tutorial together on the next go.
And speaking of KnitPicks... heads up, their big sale starts tomorrow morning! Every year I buy a huge bunch of yarn in their sale, but I think this year I'll buy a huge bunch of roving -- diversifying the stash. ;) This is exactly my kind of holiday shopping!
Also! This cowl - or one made precisely for you! - is available HERE! Let me know if you are interested in something custom!
