Natica Cowl - Work in Progress

Last February, I went to Unravel festival with a couple of friends.  It was my first day out since having Emily in May 2019... and my last day out!  I was away from her for a grand total of 6 hours, the longest I've not been with her all her life!  Then Covid struck.

At Unravel, I came across the stand of Irish Artisan Yarn - and the softest most luxurious yarn!  I didn't buy any there, but later put an order in with some great help from Tara - who assisted me in picking the perfect colours to make a Natica Cowl.

IAY Irish Artisan Baby Alpaca Silk yarn

These are on the baby alpaca and silk base, in colours Skerries (the greeny) and Donegal (the lilacy).

Here they are, caked up and with the cowl started...

Such pretty colours together!

I haven't made much progress with this in a while, as my craft-mojo is lacking a bit.  I really need to get a move on, as the yarn is so very soft and I love the colours - it's going to be such a soft, cosy and pretty cowl when it's finished!

Hope to be back soon with some finished makes!
