Beautiful and Practical

You know how I love projects that use leftover yarn and today I have a great one to share with you.

Tina made this lovely cowl using about a quarter of a skein of leftover FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn.

The pattern is the Good Luck Cowl by Christianne Gerstner, available free on her blog. The colorway is the old favorite, Midnight Passion, which is now discontinued (or at least on the backburner for a while). I think this may perhaps be the all-time best selling of the FF colorways and I finally put it aside some time back after it seemed to have run its course. I still get an occasional request for it though, so you may see it again some day. It certainly does look lovely in the product of Tina's skilled hands!

Great project! Gotta love a practical use of leftover yarn that yields something so beautiful. Thank you so much to Tina for sharing her work! You can see more on Ravelry where she is misplacedpom or on her blog. (Seriously ... go take a look. She has some really gorgeous things that are sure to inspire you to get the sticks flying!)

Everyone have a glorious Monday. It's bitterly cold here in Oregon, which is quite unusual. Add to that the fact that we actually got snow here yesterday and my plan is to stay safely indoors, perhaps curled up at least a portion of the day with some knitting.
