Siren Song Cowl

Siren Song Cowl ImageIt’s happened again: You’ve accidentally acquired a couple of skeins of incredibly beautiful, hand-painted, luxury yarn. You may have succumbed to an impluse at your LYS. Your well-meaning partner may have purchased them as a gift. However you came by the yarn, you look at it now, thinking: what am I going to make with 300 yards of this stuff? You may pet it and sigh with bliss at its softness…imagining the blobby mess it would make when knit up into a sweater. Which you don’t have enough yarn to make anyhow. You only have a skein or two.

I give you: The Siren Song Cowl. It’s a big, long, loop of tv-knitting easy-peasy lace with a tubular edge. Graft the ends together and you’ve got a throw-it-on-and-look-hot fashion statement, designed to take advantage of the variegated colors in handpainted, luxury yarn. That yarn that sang its siren song that you could not resist.

    Oh, I love your opening paragraph! I have been picking through my stash looking at my ‘save for something special’ yarns these past few days. Now my poor 2 yr old thinks yarn balls are for snuggling, and he keeps trying to sneak into my closet and steal some yarn to pet and hug 🙂

    Thanks! I hope your two year old is easier on your stash than, say, a young kitten might be! I love the image of a toddler snuggling in a stash.
