Because I Love This….

I saw this cowl on the neck of our designer Cia in the office a few months back and I just loved the look of it.  I made her take it off and let me try it! I can’t normally wear the bulkier cowls but I love making them as gifts.  This Angora Cowl is for someone like me.  It has a beautiful drape, warm without being bulky and the colors chosen just work so well together.  Did I mention it’s Angora? This would also be beautiful made with Angora Glitz.  So grab that holiday list and check off a name or two with this design!
