I’m knitting a shawl for someone at the moment and I am in love with it. I plan to have it done by the time I get the results of my next cycle (so I can continue the baby knitting!) and that is coming up very soon but I thought that just in case the real winter weather arrives even sooner than a result it might be prudent to make myself a quick winter cowl. Something solid, no lacy holes, thick and squishy and definitely something long enough to cover my nose in a biting cold wind. New Zealand get fierce southerly winds right off Antarctica in winter. Guess how much they suck? Ravelry notes here.
