I recently finished knitting the cowl I started a few weeks ago ...
This was the first time I have knitted "in the round". I didn't follow a pattern. I bought large circular needles and there was no choice in length where I bought them, so I cast on as many stitches as I needed to go around, and then just knitted (garter stitch I think - it's the only one I can do!) two whole balls of Rowan Drift yarn. I'm really happy with how it turned out - it's probably a bit longer than I originally imagined, but it's beautifully soft and warm, and the yarn was so forgiving in the dropped-stitch department, not to mention fast to knit. I'll definitely be knitting another one soon.
My apologies for the crap pics - it looks like I'm Queen Cranky-pants III, but I really just don't like being in pics much! Hope you're week has been great so far!
