A Candle Flame Cowl

Look, i just found out that you can add captions, fancy!

I'm considering casting on a lace cowl again. They seem to have becom my favourite kind of project, no assembly, a bit of a challenge, comfy and nice looking. This one is a pretty basic candle flame pattern cowl i made for my mother in law for her birthday. I stuck with something i knew i could handle to be sure i would have something not to be ashamed to give another knitter as a gift.

I would have wanted it a bit wider to give it more slouch, but other than that im pretty happy with it. It's knittet with 100% Alpaca, so it super soft and cozy.
I even caught her wearing it on a day when she didn't know we would see each other, success!

The finished thing, with a pin i bought at the yarn shop

Perhaps I should challenge myself and try one that's not as thick and have even more of a lace feel to it.
On the other hand, you can never have to many thick, soft and warm cowls, or perhaps that's just my really cold hands talking...
