I finished knitting the cabled cowl from Vogue Knitting Winter 2009, pattern #12 last night. Believe it or not, this was my first time knitting with wool. It is also my first cowl, and the first time that I used a knitting chart. Three is a magic number. I had never worn a cowl before, so I did a ravelry search for other people who had also made this cowl to see how they wore it. These were the two most popular ways to wear it. I prefer the top one. You may remember that I helped teach some Sunday school classes where we showed the kids how to dye Lionbrand's Fisherman Wool with Kool Aid. The 3rd graders dyed this wool, and I won it at my church's auction. There is enough wool left over to make a hat or gloves out of. Now to find just the right pattern for the leftover wool.
