…my second FO from September. finished, photographed, and already worn a few times.
|on Ravelry here|
I bought the yarn back in 2010 intending to knit Sara something for Georgia Tech game days. It’s a beautiful white and gold combination, thanks to the fantastic dyeing by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark (of the now closed Kitchen Sink Dyeworks). I found the gold at her booth at Stitches South that spring and she custom-dyed the white to match. Of course once I had the yarn, Sara didn’t really want me to knit her anything for game days.
Fast forward five years and I found Kirsten Kapur’s Rivington Cowl pattern. I love the stripes and the lace; it was a really fun knit…that went surprisingly quickly once I actually worked on it. This was my project for Kirsten’s Summer Shawl KAL and I tore through the lace edging in one long weekend to have it finished by her September 15 deadline.

|my go-to fall outfit – black jeans, a chambray shirt…and a cowl!|
On a sad note, since I finished the cowl, Georgia Tech hasn’t won a game (yep, three straight losses). We play Clemson (ranked #4) tomorrow. I’ll be wearing my cowl anyway!
