Here is the second Honey Cowl, finished. The yarn is Valley Yarns Huntington (75% fine superwash merino, 25% nylon) so it’s not as luxurious as Great White Bale Lot 2, but it will be sturdy. The color is perfect for fall. And she likes it. Since this yarn is smooth and plied, the honeycomb pattern really pops. So pretty.
Remember my experiment with the CO number? I cast on an odd number of stitches to see if the beginning of the round would look less seamlike. What do you think?It’s still noticeable but it feels a little less rigid than the first one. Here they are together: If I make this again, I would use an odd number.
In other news, are you in line for a CustomFit account with Amy Herzog? I am, and I’m stressing over swatches. Nothing seems quite good enough. I probably have a bit of time to keep swatching, though, since I’m 537 in the queue. I’ll report back on my swatching in a couple of days.
