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!
