My inspiration to start knitting again has really been Tasia's Gilded Lauriel cardigan. I am totally in love with this! I love the style, I love the colour she used. Love, Love, Love. But she herself admitted that it was the most difficult thing she had ever knit, so what hope do I have?
We all have to start somewhere, so I thought I should do something easier to start, and just get used to knitting again. I came across the Honey Cowl via Sewaholic and decided that this would make a great first project. I was going to try a moebius scarf as my first project, but can't really get my head around it at this stage. I started pinning some inspiration, and also joined Ravelry and have queued up quite an unrealistic list of projects, none of which I even have patterns for!
For this cowl I used Australian Merino wool which I bought from The Granny Square. It's gorgeously soft and I love the different colours happening in it! I also needed my own circular needles, so picked some of them up too. I got those really cool ones that you can screw different sized needles onto.
It took me 12 days of knitting to do this cowl, spread out over a period of 4 weeks.
