The cold has returned to Brooklyn, and I needed a proper scarf. I hadn’t ever knitted one for myself, so I went ahead with it.
This Darkside Cowl was fun to knit and quick–it took less than a day. It keeps me warm quite sufficiently.
The yarn is one ball of Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran in a lovely soft grey flecked with pink, green, blue, black, and white. My mom gave me several skeins for Christmas, with the instruction that I make something for myself with it, which I think is the sweetest thing. Though my mom taught me how to knit, she doesn’t know the first thing about it (a story for another day, I guess), so the fact that she sought out her local yarn shop and picked this yarn out for me is just about the most thoughtful thing ever.
