WIP: Chickadee Cowl by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: DragonFibers Merino/Bamboo in "Secret Garden", handspun by me
Needles: US 6 circular

I feel like I've been working on this cowl forever. I started spinning it way back in July or August and I started knitting at the beginning of November. There is still about 100 yards of it to knit up, so it'll probably be a few weeks before it's done. I really like how it's turning out, but everyone I've asked thinks it's silly. Some people just don't appreciate handspun.

The thought of having a completed handspun project makes me really excited. It's going to be so warm and fantastic. Like a little piece of spring in a bleak, chilly winter.

I just found your blog the other day and have been going back and enjoying your posts. I am a knitter and a new spinner.

I love this cowl! I wanted to ask you what type of stitch you are using. I tried to figure it out. It looks very flat like you are slipping every other stitch.

Regardless it is beautiful!
