Project

Obsessio Lace Cowl

What are you most proud of? That five full patterns into making this I discovered a fatal mistake way back at the beginning. I was actually able to frog it. I couldn't bear the thought of not making this cowl, and not using this yarn to do it! It took a very long time, but was a great exercise in patience and it taught me that what looks fearful and impossible just might be doable. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Once you get the "feel" of a fine yarn, especially one with mohair in it, worked on large-ish needles, this is really quite easy. And the result is gorgeous!

You Can Make This
