Approximately mid December, I finished a seldom knit which was not my own design – the Papyrus cowl by Lili Comme Tout.
I had my eyes on this one for a while, hoping to see more color combinations arise. As it was a club pattern from the (Vi)laines yarn club, I also had to wait for it to become available for me.
My reason for knitting this? I needed a quick cowl to match my winter coat. I’ve been talking a lot about this coat and things that should match it, without me really doing anything about it. This is partly due to it being quite hard to match something to it, as it has a quite distinct burgundy color, and partly due to it actually being too warm to wear accessories with! On the one hand that’s awesome, on the other hand I don’t really get to use any scarves, shawls and cowls at the moment.
But hey – I had this gorgeous skein of Lioness Arts Silky DK in the color “Dark Rose” (a one of a kind color), and I still had a bit of dark grey Swans Island Organic DK left after doing my Moraine cardigan. I could whip this baby up in no time!
It took me 4 days – mostly because the flowers pattern is very addictive. It’s worked over 6 rows, which makes it very easy to say “hey, let me just do one more round right now to finish this repeat…” – that’s like crack for me!
