Treat Yourself! You deserve it!

Written on January 12th, 2013 by Cia

PHEW! The holidays are over, the pressure to knit something for everyone and their dog  is over. And all of the decorations are put away (well most of them-do you find a straggler when you move about the house-like one over the mirror? Maybe its a sign I should keep it up…)
Now let’s all sit back and figure out a project just for yourself…I KNOW! Take that cash you got from Aunt Anne and Uncle Loren and go buy yourself a skein of Plymouth’s Royal Cashmere.
One skein and you can make this simple but very decadent cowl.  Feather and Fan design at its most basic!
