The cotton cowl will be wonderful and soft.
I have to find and sew on two dozen buttons.
There is no pattern.
I just cast on 40 stitches and knit some rows and purled others at whim. Then I did a row of k2tog, Yo for the button holes. It finished with a few rows of garter.
I used the lovely soft Misti Alpaca in Cotton/Silk.
Today I will work on Abby's fingerless.
She misplaced the pair I made her in the move last spring.
I'm using wool from the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool
Festival. It is a quick knit.
I realized I can make gauge depending on how the yarn and needles feel as I knit. If I'm fighting it, I know I can go up a needle size or two.
Hope you get some needle time today too!
