FO: Handspun cowl

It dried pretty quickly and I've worn it a couple times already...

Nothing fancy - just cast on 36 stitches and worked in feather and fan until the yarn ran out. Blocked and then sewed the ends together. It's not very big - just enough to loop around my neck a couple of times.

Here's a look at the full set with coat and all
All in all, I'm very pleased with it. I love it when all my accessories match.  Of course, the weather warmed up again and all that snow melted (It was 12 Celcius when I took these pics). But the temps are dipping again - I'll get more use out of it before spring, I'm sure!

It is gorgeous. The whole set is just perfect. It's always a challenge to use handspun in a way that makes it look good and you did it. Yay, you!

A co-worker once said that having matching accessories made her feel like an adult :) They're lovely!

It looks great. That certainly is a pretty way to brighten up a grey winter day.

Lovely all! I am nearing the completion of a cabled sweater so I am praying we still have cold left in our winter!!!

Such warm, juicy colors - remind me of yummy fruits like papaya, mango and berries!!!
