March=M=Mira

Way back in February the Loopy’s Monthly Mixer for March was assigned and the requirement was to knit a pattern, yarn or color that began with the letter M. I remember spending over an hour trying to figure out what to knit. Nothing was coming to me. I didn’t see an M yarn that I just had to knit (yes, I know I could have just gone with Malabrigo but I didn’t see a color I had to have). After much consideration I decided to knit Mira’s Cowl by Mira Cole. I was working on Loopy Academy projects at the time and felt pressure adding in another project. But I did it anyway. The yarn I knit it with is Cascade Heritage solids in Como blue. In my photo the color is way too blue. It is a greener blue like in the link. I was pleased with the way the cowl came out though I would have liked something narrower. I tucked it into a drawer figuring I’d revisit it later. A couple of weeks ago a woman at my knitting group was looking for some hand knits. A woman that she works with was collecting things for an auction for a wildlife group. I knew right away that that was where my cowl was supposed to go. I happily packaged it up with some washing instructions and donated it right away. YAY!
