the forgotten cowl

I stitched this up in July, but just took a picture of it yesterday.  It's malabrigo rasta yarn in natural.  Personally, I blame the weather for  my forgetfullness.  It's a thick cowl and the weather just hasn't been cold enough around here for something this cozy.

It's just knit in the round on with big needles.  After all this time, I don't remember what size needles I used.  I think maybe 15, I do remember I used the whole skein.

I'm sure it will feel more like winter soon enough, and when it does, I'll be ready with this new cowl.
