Another Introduction!

Okay, at some point I promise to have actual content on this blog, but, introducing:

Bristol's Cowl! (Note: I promise I am not narcissistic enough to name this after myself! I had called it the Cathedra Cowl in proofs, but I bow to higher judgment.)

This cowl is knit from just one skein of Quince and Co.'s Puffin, a lovely, lightly spun bulky single in the most gorgeous colors. The lace lets you play with a couple different techniques on a large scale for instant gratification! Plus, the one skein requirement lets you try out a great yarn with minimal investment. It would also be awesome for that skein of Lopi kicking around, or that bit of bulky handspun you've not found a use for yet. . .

Check it out at Quince and Co. here, or on Ravelry here.

And up soon on the blog (I promise): can I design and knit an entire Fair Isle sweater in the month of November? Well, not if the yarn's still drying! (Which it is. Eek.)


  1. Just found your blog from Quince and had to read more when I saw your 'Christchurch' shawl!!! I'm an ex-pat kiwi for almost 30 years but get back home every year or so and love knitting - will check the archives to find out the history of your trip etc.

  2. Hi, I love this pattern! I have a question, what does "no stitch" mean? I am having a problem keeping my number of sts coming out right when I just ignore them in the pattern? Sorry, I haven't done that much lace work. Thank you!
