It's 95 degrees outside, but I needed to keep my hands busy while I watched the Olympics. I started and unraveled at least a dozen projects before settling on a simple cowl from Lion Brand's website (stockinette cowl, Easy +). It's probably the fastest, largest project I'd done, (a couple of hours here and there over 5 days) and my hands hurt. You just need to know knit/purl/bind off to do this and it's made on circular needles. I used an acrylic yarn versus wool, which might account for the stiffness, particularly at the bottom, but it's nice and warm. I figured it would be a nice change from a scarf, which I have too many of anyway. Next project is a simple hat for my upcoming plane ride.
