Peace Project Progress
December 21, 2016
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!
