Early morning Saturday expressions caught while wearing the toyon neck cowl. I just finished the piece last night, after starting it during the last phase of our dye class last week.
I used Heidi Iverson’s cowl pattern, and borrowed her incredible circular needles (connected by a tube instead of a plastic string).
I handspun the yarn from Mimi Luebberman’s corriedale cross, West Marin roving– and dyed them in a month old Toyon bath. This cowl is sooo warm, I feel like my overall body temperature has been raised. My hands and toes are warm too!
After my afternoon swim– I relish the thought of slipping this cowl around my neck. Life has improved with this little accessory!
