Somewhat Blue Somewhat Cowl!

Well, I finished it last night at around 5pm - all ends woven in and everything! (A small blessing from an abysmally slow day at work.) This picture was taken before blocking, and there's the slightest amount of rippling where I picked up stitches for the cowl, and the cowl ribbing is pretty bunchy still. After blocking, both matters should resolve. She really just needs a nice, relaxing bubble bath to settle down!



I made the sleeves a bit longer to cover the flubby bits on the back of my arms, added the waist shaping Wendy provided instruction for (thanks, Wendy!), although I probably could have gotten away without it. I also make the cowl itself shallower - I was just ready to be done with that ribbing! I love how it turned out. Now, if we'd just get back to our regularly scheduled cooler Spring weather rather than the 80s we've been having lately, I could actually wear it once or twice before putting it away for winter...
