I have not been very monogamous with my knitting. I keep picking things up and setting them down, but I finally got something finished. It was a nail-biter, though, because I was afraid I'd run out of yarn. I didn't, but this is all I have left:
The yarn is some Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy that I picked up on clearance from my LYS, and this is a vintage cowl top pattern from A Stitch in Time. There were some problems with the pattern, but I really like top itself. I wore it all day today and it was really light, airy, and comfy!
Of course, I have more details on Ravelry and in the gallery. But I did want to highlight a little something here. You are supposed to do a crochet edging to neaten things up around the neckline, but luckily, I didn't have to do that (I would not have had enough yarn!). How did I manage that? It was thanks to TechKnitter's excellent tutorials on how to make a nice chain bind off at the beginning and end of a neckline (or any other place when you're bindng off in the middle of a row. You avoid that unsightly gap. I highly recommend those entries, and really the blog in general, as must-reads.
