My mother's birthday came and went this year. So I am doing a fast knit with her favorite colors and a new yarn I discovered for a belated gift.
This yarn is one from the new Red Heart Boutique line called Midnight. It is in the colorway Shadow and is in pinks and greys. It has a little hint of glitter to it. The ball band says that it is a worsted ((4)) weight however it calls for size 10US needles.
So, I decided that it was destined to be a Cowl'd and Frosty cowl. I knit it just like the pattern calls for and it is turning out beautifully.
This will be gifted on Turkey Day, only a week late. Whew!
