First cowl. First handspun.
I used a Raveler’s modifications to a Burberry-inspired cowl pattern. It was super quick. I could have made the wider version — I had a ton of yarn leftover. Speaking of yarn, it was a lovely 2-ply aran weight handspun I bought on Etsy. It was nice, very nice. Was it worth 30 bucks? No. There are such amazing commercially spun yarns out there for a fraction of the cost. While I definitely would purchase handspun again, I don’t expect it to become an addiction. (Phew!)
Like I said, I had a fair amount of yardage leftover — enough to make a baby hat:
Question: is there too much pink in this yarn to give as a baby gift for someone who doesn’t know the gender of her baby? (In other words, if she ends up having a boy, will this hat be too feminine?)
