Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

Winter Solstice Cashmere Cowl

Lobster Pot Cowl by Susan McCurdy

Yarn:  Lobster Pot Hand Dyed Cashmere
One Skein: Hydrange US Needle 8 

Winter Solstice Cowl

I wish you could squeeze this in your hands!  

I decided last minute that I wanted to knit something special for my sister out of Lobster Pot Hand Dyed Cashmere yarn.  It was too late to order and none to be found within a two hour drive so I frogged my cashmere hat I knit last winter.  I only wore my hat twice so after frogging a gentle steam and dry removed any kink.  

I knit this in two evenings and finished the morning of Solstice and it was ready for the trip to Vermont with Christmas crackers and Lake Champlain chocolates. 

 I love this yarn.  The color is beautiful and the seed stitch in the pattern makes the neck warmer cushion-like.  

I knit this one years ago (2006) and I see my knitting has improved!  

...Happy Trails....
