And now, I’m making this! It’s the Honey Cowl link here.
My progress isn’t great (I’ve been exhausted going back to uni and having work or uni all seven days of the week) but I’m enjoying finally having tamed that extra stick! I’ve left in a few of my mess ups, because I like that you can see that I was learning with it 🙂
My most recent progress is here:

I’m using a beautiful single ply merino from New Zealand, that was on special at my local knitting store. $12 for both skeins! Win!
