Recently I have been receiving back garments from my test knitters practically every day!
I have been getting many of my patterns knit up for a second and third trunk show.
This way the yarn shops don't have to wait so long to display the garments.
I wish that I could do all of the knitting myself, but it's a huge job.
It's been nice receiving help with the task.
I have to admit that its kind of fun giving someone a pile of yarn
and receiving a nice neat finished garment in the mail soon thereafter.
It's like instant knitting. And its great.
And have I mentioned that it's also been a great way for me to use up some of my stash yarn?
This cowl is knit out of Rowan Cocoon yarn.
This yarn's mohair content gives the fabric a slightly fuzzy texture.
The rustic wood buttons that she chose really set off the cowl nicely.
I really like the way this looks.
Another yarn that would give a similar look would be Lamb's Pride Bulky.
But I'll let you knit that. Mohair doesn't like me much. :)
