FO: Good Luck Cowl

I made this cowl in the hope that it will work as a bit of a bribe. My sewing is hopeless and my darning is non-existent. I have a couple of hand knitted socks that have developed holes and need darning. A friend of mine has darned some of my socks in the past and she did a splendid job. Now I need to ask her to do so again. I thought the good luck cowl might be a good incentive.

I still had a ball of the Cleckheaton Bamboo left after I had knitted my socks so I thought I would put it to good use.

It turned out to be just the right amount seeing as I now only have a few centimeters of yarn left.

I really like this yarn and I like the cowl so I think I'm going to have to get some to make myself a cowl or something. The only problem is the very limited colour range. But I won't let that put me off too much.

that is a pretty lace stitch - dont they have other colours of bamboo in Spotties? do you have a Spotties near you?

Hi Val. They do have other colours at my Spotties but usually only orange and the one that I made the socks and cowl out of. I did manage to nab some blue the other day.

That's a lovely cowl, nice and snug.
If they don't have the right colour, maybe you can dye some?

The cowl is lovely! Did I tell you that my uncle & family were stationed in Zimbabwe years ago? They lived in Harrare and loved it there. They also lived in Ethiopia, but did not like it near as much!

Your cowl is absolutely beautiful. Nice job.
