squishy squishy squishy
I just finished a cute cowl/neckwarmer/whatever for my stepdad. It's called the darkside cowl, and it is very alluring. It's so squishy and textural I just want to squeeze it!
My mods were minimal; I used the superbulky Cascade 109 tweed (on sale at WEBS) and size 10.5 needles, casting on 72 for a large man's size. For myself, I'd probably cast on 64. It was easy to finish in two evenings' knitting, so I'll probably be making some more for xmas gifts.
