Don’t you just love it when things come together. I thought the ‘Wasabi Cowl’ I saw on Pinterest was yummy, it was a pattern from ‘knit the hell out’. I loved the slubbby look of the yarn. I had never seen Colinette Point 5 for sale and looked for something similar whenever I was able but nothing measured up. Then a couple of weeks ago I decided on a trip to Islington to visit one or two craft shops. It was in the lovely ‘Loop’ yarn store that I noticed the distinctive colour on the shelf and sure enough it was the very one! There were other colours but I was going to visit Liz soon and wanted to take her a little present and the colour was just the perfect one for her.
It was a really quick knit on 15mm needles and I loved the finished article – but – one niggle. I washed the cowl very gently in very cool water and with a non-bio product but it lost a lot more colour than I would have liked.
We had a lovely couple of days in Lyme Regis with Liz an Hilton, talking and eating; eating and talking, we had a lot of catching up to do. And the cowl had it’s first outing on a lovely walk on the cob.
