Ocean Hues Cowl and a Button-Maybe :)

In January, I finally finished a cowl project that I started in Sept with the yarn that I received from Expression Fiber Arts in the summer of last year.  It languished looking for the perfect button. The yarn is a soft wool in the colors of the beach in Oregon where her honey proposed to her last summer on a road trip. I sat with the yarn for a few months until I could decide what to do with it. It finally occurred to me that the coldest part of my anatomy was frequently my neck and the various Neckwarmer items I have around needed a new colorful addition to the pile.

The start of the project. Swatching to find the stitch I want.
Stitch pattern chosen, the rows begin.
The zip-pouch came from NY when Baby Boy's family traveled.
Finished except for a button.
The button-from stash-may not be the final choice but it's ok for now.


  1. I love the yarn colors. They really do remind me of the beach. The zip pouch is really cute. Is it made of measuring tapes?
