Better Late than Never

Well, it's about time. After ripping out the ribbing almost a month ago, I finally decided to finish my Somewhat Cowl. She's mighty pretty.

I'm being fussy but I'm still not sure about the length. However, when I made it longer, I didn't like the way it sat on my hips. Also, the bind off is still tight but I'm going to live with it for awhile and see how I feel. I have plenty of yarn left over so I'll figure it out later.

So sexy!!

Wonderful color and it looks PERFECT on you! Keep on knitting those sexy knits.

If you continue to be dissatisfied with the bind-off edge's tightness, in future you can use a size or two larger needle for the bind-off of projects. That's what works for me.

Deena, I think it looks pretty. I love that color. I'm going to have to use that yarn. When I bound mine off, it was very tight also. I rip out a few inches and went up a needle size in the ribbing and bound off with the next size up because mine sits right on the hip.

It's beautiful! Orange is one of my favorite colors, so I just love this.

I love your somewhat cowl. That's my next project after I tie up a bunch of WIPs. Thanks for the inspiration!
