A Touch of Color: Janine's Cowl

J's cowl is complete and it is the inspiration for my Knit-Wear store design model. I love cowls and enjoyed making gloves, so my idea is to make those using my two obsessions in yarn - variegated and mono-tones(ecru, doe, grays etc).

Using primarily the ecru tea-dyed alpaca blend and adding a touch of the colors of the Grant Creek colorway, resulted in a cowl that I love to bits. It brought my worlds together, a moment of clarity.
