try this website cowls are notoriously tricky.
how to successfully market dating sites there’s too small, just right, too big,
followed by just right to be doubled, and then way, way too big.
it wasn’t until i wove in the ends this morning,
that the proverbial light bulb went off in my head.
this is not wool.
which i knew all along and is significant because
when i swatched at the begining, i calculated the # of sts to co
based on the swatch stretched out (my cheater’s version of blocked).
since i’ve planned this all along as a spring to very early fall piece,
i chose a silk cotton blend. intentionally.
the faux pas is that only when trying it on for the first time
did i discover my mistake.
so, instead of ‘just right’ i have too long to be a single loop
and too short to be doubled. sigh.
now i’ll have to keep
my eyes open for a friend who likes their cowls this length (because some people do)
then this can become a well loved gift
and i can have another go,
a fresh start with
my cowl is still coming,
just a little a later than i thought.
