I'm usually monogamous when it comes to projects. I try to restrain some self control when knitting and I only start a new project once the old project is bound off. But this summer, I've taken many breaks from my Bevan Pullover. I'm a sucker for color blocking, and I strayed from the colors called for, choosing cool tones instead. The pattern has been easy to follow and I've enjoyed gauging my progress by the number of color changes I've made.
But while I knit away at Bevan, I have completed a few other projects because... you know... cast on envy!
This summer, I started and finished knitting Jumo, a Trapezoid Tee, a Caledonia Cowl, a Sunshine Daydream Cardi–my favorite summer project–, a Three Color Cashmere Cowl, and last but not least, a Peeep-a-Boo Cowl.
The Peeep-a-Boo Cowl was one of my favorite things to make because Jade Sapphire's Peeeps yarn is just heaven. I picked the colors I wanted to knit with and was extremely disappointed when I had to bind off. I could just knit this yarn forever!
Peeeps is a strand of wool wrapped in a cloud of cashmere, creating a light and airy yarn. The pattern comes with the kit but you can stripe the cowl as you please, making up your own pattern. The kit comes with two balls of one main color and one ball of a contrast color. I knit up exactly one and a half balls of yarn for one cowl and have enough leftover to make one more cowl to gift someone who will also fall in love with the softness and amazing quality that is Peeep! I can't wait for cooler temperatures so I can throw this on.
