A week or so ago I posted a photo of my knitting bag and the bag was stuffed with some unfinished projects. I told myself I had to finish those before embarking on something new. Here's one of those knitting projects off the needles.
*Honey Cowl* Madeline Tosh pattern, Madeline Tosh yarn in a colorway called Georgia. Hard to photograph in our winter light and a bit more purple than is showing on my monitor.
The pattern gives a choice of several widths and lengths. The version I chose is 8 inches wide and 32 inches long. Wrapped around twice it creates a nice turtle neck effect.
A close up shows the colorway and stitch pattern a bit better.
The pattern was easy, the yarn lovely to work with. That said, I think the honeycomb pattern would show up more in a solid color as pictured in the pattern. This was a case of choosing the yarn first because I liked it so much and then trying to find a pattern to use it with. That's probably not the best way to go although I think lots of knitters do it just that way.
I may eventually make this one again in a solid color.
Have you recently finished a project that was on the back burner so to speak or do you finish each project as you go?
