You could say I am Somewhat excited!

The Somewhat Cowl I knit for my Mom is finished! After seeing the finished result I know I will knit one for myself as well! This was a very enjoyable knit, as well as an easy one! I was most concerned with picking up the stitches along the neckline, however, it turned out beautifully on my first try! Here is a look before blocking. (Keep in mind the dress form is mine, and I am bit smaller than Mom.)
Yarn: KnitPicks, Shine (60% cotton/40%modal) color: Orchid; 9 skeins used for size 38 bust.
Modifications: I shortened the sleeves a bit and only knit 5.5 inches of cowl.

Wendy, Thanks so much for such a great pattern!
