Periwinkle Progress

This is how far I am on the Somewhat Cowl. The true color is more like the detail photo, medium Periwinkle blue. The yarn is Lion Brand Micro Spun.

The twist on the yarn is making an interesting "mini-cable" out of one half of each stitch, as I hope you can see in the detail photo. I got another circular needle in the same size (3.25mm) but longer this time by 9". It is MUCH nicer to work on. I don't feel so crowded anymore.

I have knitted with Lion Brand Microspun and I am fascinated with the way the stitches look twisted like that. I love that color too! I have it at home just waiting to be made into yet another One Skein Wonder!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with funny stitches in this yarn! Thought I was crazy for a while there. I do really love that yarn, it's SO soft and smooth.
