Last night I hauled out the 'kit', started it and knit 8 short row wedges out of 86.
Inspira Cowl. I selected a couple of balls each of the Wildflowers and Strawberry Fields colourways.
Knitting corrugated ribbing (K2 with MC and P2 with CC) is a bit tedious but the colour changes are so neat, I am encouraged to keep on knitting. I got all of this done tonight while Skip and I watched the DVD of 'Django Unchained' (I couldn't really watch the really gory parts).The yarn is a bit fuzzy and splitty but for a wool/acrylic blend, it's fairly nice to work with. And at $4.97 a ball, it's a good value.
BTW, I bailed on the Simple Cowl with the Mission Falls 1824 Cotton. I'd rather do the cowl in a nice, soft worsted wool - possibly merino, and use the cotton yarn for something else. Also, I only need 2 balls of Mission Falls yarn to complete the cowl, so I'll keep my eyes out for some Mission Falls 1824 Wool yarn or some other solid or tonal worsted weight yarn. I'm not that keen on the bobbles so I might omit them or substitute something else.
