Finished Object (FO)Friday

Hello all!

Here is the latest  off my needles. A friend (hope she doesn’t see this post!) is turning 30 so I sent her a cute knit to celebrate this momentous occasion. Picking a project was a little tough as she lives in Southern California and currently it is 70 degrees there. I ultimately picked a cowl as it isn’t too huge and/or bulky. And besides it does get “chilly” at night in California.

Project Profile:

Pattern: Broken Rib Stitch taken from the pattern  Graham by Jennifer Adams.

Yarn:Cascade 128 Superwash Merino Wool in Sapphire Heather (100 grams)

Cast On: 126 stitches

Needles: US Size 10 circular; Cowl was made using the magic loop method

One thing I discovered was the great pattern that forms on the back side of the broken rib. You can really see it with the lighter color yarn and larger gauge. So this cowl has the extra benefit of being reversible! IMG_5290[1]

 

In other great news, I got engaged this week! The boyfriend (now future husband) popped the question on a lovely hike on the Costal Trail in Marin County, CA. It was amazing! I am super excited about our future nuptials and spending my life time with him. I am so excited that I have taken to making cheesy Instaframes documenting our engagement 🙂 (haha) Wishing you all a Happy Friday!
