Risking It

I’m running late again. My MIL was buried this morning. It was a quick event but we’d received a text warning us of traffic in the area due to an accident. This caused us to rush getting ourselves thrown together and out the door. We arrived early. Evidently the accident had been cleared and the traffic recovered quickly.

Hopefully Sharon from Security has no knowledge of my blog and I won’t get a citation for posting a photo of my Secret Handshake MKAL cowl. This is the first time I’ve shared a full photo on the blog. The last clue, which I’ll start today, was released Friday so I suspect the hardcore MKAL participants have finished and won’t find my post a spoiler.

I’ve really enjoyed knitting this pattern. Each row is knit with one yarn. All the colorwork looking stuff is done with slip stitches. Many of these stitches are new to me so the whole thing has been a learning adventure. The color vibe is a bit 70’s. The dark color at the bottom of the photo is brown, not the dark green it appears to be. Overall I’m enjoying everything about this project even if it sits way outside my comfort zone.

    I’m just curious what size needles you are using? It looks huge for a Cowl but Perhaps it’s just the perspective.
