welcome to the darkside

Wow! An actual FO. And it’s a gwfgwf gift too boot. Go me!

Pattern: Darkside Cowl  (Raveled here)
Yarn: 1 skein of Alpaca Bulky (purchased at Valley Shepherd Creamery in NJ. The best creamery ever. It sells cheese and yarn and other sheepy goodness. AND they have alpacas.)
Needles: 10.5 circulars
Mods: None

My Mom requested a small gifty for her riding instructor. Something that would keep her warm during her time in the outdoor ring. It took me (the slowest knitter in the world) all of three days to finish this up. Knitting time was exactly five 20 minute T rides, one hour long webinar, and part of a lunch hour where I bound off and wove in the ends. I managed to get it in the mail to NJ a few days later and Mom loves it. She’s gifting it this weekend, so I hope her riding instructor likes it too.

The best part, I’ve got another skein of the yarn so Mom will be getting one for Christmas.
