So somehow, even though I’m smack-dab in the middle of both Malabrigo October Stockpile and Spinzilla, I find myself casting on a new cowl… made with Malabrigo? No. Handspun? No… Codex.
Apparently, when it comes to Codex, I lose all reason and can’t be held accountable. (I also needed some easy office knitting.) I came across this gorgeous version of the Ingot cowl (designed by Lisa Mutch) knit by Christine/BellyLaugher on Ravelry and I instantly coveted it. So I doggedly hunted down 3 skeins of black/teal Codex so my friend Katy and I can knit matching cowls. They are going to be awesome!
I also made some progress on the things I’m supposed to be knitting this month. Like these mitts:
I’m using Rios held double for a super squishy fabric. I’m really liking how the pattern is turning out! And finally, some spinning:
I’m through 2 ounces of the Malabrigo Nube! I’m much slower than the other spinners on my #Spinzilla team (#TeamSpinOff) but hey, 2 oz in 2 days is pretty good for me!
