I am officially cowled out. Having finished "Blueberry Scowl", I am done with this medium for awhile.
I can't decide if this one is worthy of presentation to a value friend. The buttons pictured are temporary, and the color is a bit more dowdy in real life. It's along the lines of country-kitchen cute to be accompanied by geese festooned with mauve bows. It also blocked out really long. I will dye, shop for buttons, and re-evaluate. (back to knitting lacy wedding shawls in the meantime.)

I have been slaving away on the feministy.com cowl knitalong from designer Liz Abinante the past few weeks or so. (Thanks to Redshirt Knitting for the tip!) The deal is, there are 5 patterns (all cowls) and 50 days. If you finish cowl #1, by the stated deadline, you receive the pattern for cowl #2 free. If you finish cowl #2, you get the pattern for #3 for free, and so on. If you finish all 5 by March 24th, there is a special prize. I was unable to resist the challenge and cast on cowl number one (Flurries pictured above) as soon as I heard. I just finished #4 and am eager to receive the final pattern on Monday.
