Yesterday I got to the point in the sockhead cowl where I needed to just finish it. Tonight I accomplished that. I love the yarn. I like the finished product. I just got to the point where I was done having it as a WIP.

I think I will love having this on really cold days. I can pull it up over my nose and pull a hat down over my eyebrows and stay less frigid.

With the completion of this project I have knit all of the yarn that I purchased at the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival this year. I am now free to buy the yarn I want at the festival next year without any guilt. I will probably hold back though, as I have a fun trip planned to the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival next September.

  1. What a great idea for a cowl, that really should stop it slipping down and allowing drafts. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your idea about the use all the yarn from a particular show before going again. I’ve got a yarn buying ban in 2020, but this sounds like an idea to concentrate next year’s usage on what I bought at a particular fibre festival and then I can go guilt free in 2021!

  2. Your cowl is fantastic!! I bet you’ll get lots of opportunities to wear it:)
    Congratulations on using up all the yarn you bought! I’ve got a bit of a yarn buying moratorium going on here too. Only yarn for Loopy Academy can be bought and it must be knit right away.
