10 Degrees of Finished

Thermometer reads 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Time for every one of those gigantic cowls and scarves to earn their keep.

This is the Gap-Tastic Cowl, knit up in Quince & Co. Puffin in the Peacoat color way. Looks a bit purple in the photos, but it is a perfect navy blue. This was knit for my niece who chose the pattern and the yarn and it was a quick and easy project with a great result. I'm sorry I didn't get a shot of her wearing it, but it was so cold, dark and rainy on the day I saw her that it was all we could do to find our way down the street, let alone pose for pix.

Quince & Co. yarns are just about my favorite yarns to work with, both for knitting and crochet. The palette of colors is beautiful, and somewhat varied for each yarn type/family, and the fabrics wear very well. 

Visit Tami's Amis for Finished Object Friday and see how others are starting the year. It's an international group of posters, and I enjoy reading about the sunny warm weather in other parts of the world where it is way too hot to knit a wool sweater and no one needs a King Kong-sized cowl to survive the season.


  1. I just finished a cowl for me, and happy I was to have it since our temps have dipped into the teens and lower. Brrr!! I even kept in on inside on Wednesday because I was so chilled. I am seeing a lot more cowls in my future. Perfect for those one skein buys you make on impulse! Love your niece's Gaptastic.

  2. I've made this too, i've made one for a gift and one for myself, I love it! Yours looks fab!

    1. Thanks! After seeing how great it turned out, I decided to make one for me, too:) The pattern is simple and straightforward, but the result is very sophisticated.
