WIP: The Saddest Cowl on Earth

Yesterday was my birthday - a quiet one this year - and in celebration, I grabbed a couple of skeins of Spincycle BFL Worsted from my stash, in the colorway The Saddest Place on Earth, to make a simple cowl. I'm doing a larger version of the Sonmi Cowl, which I finished right before starting on the show and never did a finished object post about - silly me! I'm enjoying the gorgeous shift of colors and subtle thick-and-thin quality of the yarn paired with the simplicity of stockinette with just a dash of garter stitch. This yarn is so, so lovely and it's exactly what I needed on a dreary spring day like today.

In other news, I'm currently working away on my ball gown presentation, which sadly I can't share with you until after it's finished; I'm also realizing how run down I am from dealing with health problems. As a result, the blog will be quieter for a bit while I finish the presentation and replenish my reserves.

I'll probably still be posting sporadically - I can't stay away, especially when yarn is involved! - but otherwise, I'll see you on the other side. <3

Colorway may be "the saddest", but the cowl looks beautiful to me!

Be well :)
