OK, I am ready for winter now because I have finished knitting my cowl.
I am not able to take a picture of myself wearing it so Teddy Blue will have to be my stand in.
I won him years ago and my nieces enjoyed him when they were children - that is why he looks a bit messy, but I do not have the heart to throw him out.
This yarn was very nice to knit with and with a size 8 circular needle it does not take long to finish something. I will definitely use this yarn again some other time - I hope.
