Technically I suppose it should be The Neckwarmer Of The Wild, but where's the pun in that??
This is the same green as the warm Kathmandu zippy jacket I wear to walk The Labradors in the Winter. It is the Candle Flame Cowl from The Ravelry. It is written for 10 ply, but I used 8 ply and cast on 112 stitches and two thirds of the way through I made the purl rib P3, just to make it a little wider at the bottom. It is extremely warm and snuggly and I have worn it twice now.
Sometimes you win, and sometimes you have to lie on the Otto instead. Lorelai Gilmore is a good loser!!!
Thank you for all the recommendations for a cardigan. In the end I did choose a very simple rib cardigan where I will be able to use the whole 20 balls of wool. I have added the other cardigans to my Queue and I am looking forward to knitting them anon!! I am starting with the sleeves because then I will have quite a good idea about how much wool I will have for the fronts and the back. There will be a lot more buttons too.
The weather is wintry, we've just had our coldest May day in 22 years ( by 0.1 of a degree) and there is snow on the mountains already so skiers are champing at the bit. I am not a skier, but I am glad we will have a ski season this year, the last few Winters have been light on snow.
This weekend I plan to do more knitting ( surprise!!) and maybe read The Name of The Wind again. It came at The Library today and it is so long since I read it (2007) that I have to re-read it before I can tackle his new book.
