After I finished my Augustine Shawlette this week, I knew I had to knit with more color. I love the results but if you look at my Ravelry project page, you can see knitting with a creamy white is not typical for me.
I looked at my knitting goals for the year and I probably could have made a commitment to finishing that Fishtail Lace Scarf because that has plenty of color. But instead, I did what every crazy knitter does and started a new project with even more color. And it’s making me so happy.
I decided to cast on for an Inspira Cowl.
I cast on using some Noro Kureyon from my stash. I’m knitting the Mesa Rock version and cast on 180 stitches on US 10.5 needles. I want it to be big and cozy and fit around my shoulders. I suspect I might run out of the 154 colorway partially through but I have some bits of Silk Garden laying around that might look okay. Or I guess if I have to I’ll buy another skein of a similarly bright colorway of Kureyon because it doesn’t look like I’ll find any 154. But I really want to avoid buying any because the point is to use up yarn.
I already love the way it looks. It’s totally filling my need for color.
