Way back machine malfunctions!

So, way back in March, I bought some of this lovely red Sweet Georgia Yarns' Trinity Worsted for an Adama Cowl.

Well, then it sat. And sat. Until May when I picked it up again for a travel project.

Finally, I finished it. This cowl is higher in the back of the neckline - basically like a sweetheart neckline? - but you can wear the high part in the front or in the back.

Just in time for June

While the yarn was luscious, it is a little tightly wrapped for this pattern. I think I'll make it again with a fuzzier yarn - something a little more soft. In the skein, the yarn is deceptively fuzzy . . .

And now that I have a bit more free time on my hands (***clears my throat, uhm, wedding!), I'm back to the neutrals I love so well. I've started an Islay cardigan from Gudrun Johnston in some pearl gray Imperial Yarn Tracie Too that I bought years ago in Maryland. 

So far, I'm loving the yarn's soft hand and the pattern's traditional style.

Knit on!
