I've been all about knitting lately. I went months without knitting much and now all of a sudden I want to knit all the time. For now I'll go with it. I'll at least have samples knit from our yarns that way.
What's on the needles now though is not my yarn. I was having one of those "I'm tired of knitting with my own yarn can I please knit with someone else's" moments this past weekend at the Wine & Wool festival. I bought this awesome bluesy and brown worsted weight yarn from Colorbug Yarns. Her stuff is awesome, BTW. I couldn't wait to cast on with it. The only problem was I bought it with no idea of what I was going to do with it.
After a couple hours on Ravelry looking through patterns I found Greyhaven. It's a fun, slightly lacey cowl. I've honestly never knit a cowl before, but I like this one! It's knitting up so fast and I love how this yarn is striping. And the best part.....it's a free Ravelry pattern.
