This one was a very speedy knit, and knocked one gift-knit off the list
Pattern: Man (or anyone) Cowl (rav link)
Yarn: Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice in Navy.
Needles: Addi Turbos, US8s.
Impressions: The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I was a little worried that the yarn was not soft enough to wear around the neck, but a washing and a trip through the dryer did the trick. I just hope the recipient likes it!
