Happy Winter Solstice! Here is to the shortest day of the year. Let the advancing hours of daylight begin!
How is your Peace Project cowl commencing? I am very happy with mine. The Wildwood Arcadia yarn is knitting up beautifully, and the pattern has a nice rhythm to it that is gentle, yet produces a look that suits my variegated yarn. I love it.
I got started late, so my cowl isn't finished; it's a little over halfway to being done, and that is okay. I love knitting it.
One of the things that slowed me down a bit was that I chose to start it with an I-cord cast on, which made a lovely little tubular edge that I like a lot!
It took me a day to cast on all the over 300 stitches this way, but it turned out nicely. I plan to cast off with an I-cord bind off as well, making both edges match.

I hope your Peace Project Cowl is giving you a bit of peace this holiday season!
