Antler caught my eye. Dove grey (2203) for the main color. Citron (2202) for the contrasting color.
I'm headed to see some blue waters and hope to make a little dent in this. Or not. At least I have a project for the airplane ride. My absolute favorite place for uninterrupted knitting.
Enjoy the last of March!

Pattern: Blue Monday
Yarn: Stash, washable wool.
Needles: US 7
Modifications: I knit one more cable repeat after the thumb. A k2, p2 instead of the seed stitch cuff. And, knit 7 rows for the thumb instead of 3.
I had a much needed manicure today in honor of the first day of spring. Hello, romper room.

Ever have one of those projects where knitting them is way more enjoyable than the finishing? (All of them?!) Well, this was definitely one of those.
This pattern calls for you to whip stitch the long strip together using 5 yards of organza ribbon. I decided to forego that detail and seam the edges together instead. All 178" of it.
And, it sits tight around your neck blocking air for those super cold days.
Pattern: Magnolia Swirl Cowl
Yarn: Magnolia, #5425 berry, 3 balls
Needles: US 6

Soften butter on the counter, put on comfy clothes, make creamy tomato basil sauce and homemade bread, take a nap, drink a lot of tea, watch a movie, and knit a hat.
It's another great pattern from Spider Woman Knits. (Remember the Cowl!)
I have received so much joy from her free patterns, I think it's time I contribute a little something to her.
P. S. I used this yarn.
