And now for the boring bit, stats:
Pattern: No pattern, I made this up. CO a multiple of 4 and k2p2 in the round until my yarn was gone! I wanted a big thick chunky cowl, and the yarn was far too busy for anything much more eloborate. I would have liked it a bit shorter, but when I was casting on it just didn't seem like enough. Still, it does the job nicely methinks, and it's stretchy and squishy.
Needles: 6.5mm (I think) ciruclars.
Yarn: Some acylic stuff called Toscana by a mob called Fiddlesticks purchased from Big W. The ball band tells me there was 100m per ball, I used 2 balls. I was very surprised to discover the yarn was self striping - bonus!
In the interests of full disclosure, my modelling career did not get off to a good start. As soon as I got in front of the camera, I felt like a total nong. How does a person pose? What do I do with my hands? Regular readers will know that I don't like my face. I think it's more that I don't like my face in photographs. I am therefore using the medium of this blog to get over my aversion to my own face. It's like therapy.
I also need to give a shout out to my 'sylist' Lou for her invaluable contributions towards setting up the wonderful pictures seen above (and holding my stuff!). (There she is helping me!!) xox
