Robin's Egg Cowl
Sometime during the prior school year I brought my spinning wheel to preschool and did some spinning with a bunch of 2 to 5 year olds. Some kids spun for a few minutes, and others were really engaged and spun for 20 minutes or more. We used a lovely blue Merino, and the resulting yarn was a small amount of thick and thin yarn.
I set the yarn aside for the better part of a year, and after several false starts this weekend I made this cowl in about 2 hours. The needles were uncomfortably large. I settled on a pattern of my own devising, and it actually came out more even looking and pretty than I was anticipating.
I made this with one of the teachers in mind, and it really is a good color for her. I do think that she really liked it, and it truly looks so much better on her than in these pictures!
