2009's Lost Projects: Cowl Edition

Here is another edition of my 2009 lost projects. I made six cowls this past year, two of which have already been featured (Sara's Fairisle and the Checkerboard Cowl).

The first cowl, which was actually made last, is a pattern of my own design that I've been calling the "New Beginnings Cowl." A pattern may be posted one of these days.
Yarn: Pagewood Farm St. Elias in "Ireland"
Needles: US 3 circ's
Started: 12/22/09
Completed: 12/25/09
FO: Quick and Dirty
Pattern: Crofter's Cowl by Gudrun Johnston
Yarn: Catalina Yarns Baby Silk in the oh-so-exciting colorway "509"
Needles: US 8 DPN's
Started and Completed: 09/26/09

FO: Darkside Cowl
Pattern: Darkside Cowl by Sarah Fama
Yarn: Sundara Yarn Aran Silky Merino in "Charcoal over Blue Lagoon"
Needles: US 8 DPN's
Started: 04/12/09
Completed: 04/15/09
FO: Herringbone Cowl, herringbone stitch taken from a stitch dictionary, knit flat, ends grafted together.
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in "Bobby Blue"
Needles: US 8 DPN's

Looking over these, it has become very obvious to me that I need to break out of the blue family and add some spice into my cowl wardrobe...
