Work has continued on my niece's cowl. It is over 3 feet long. I have about 20 grams left to knit, and each pattern repeat is using about 5 grams. I should be done in another day or two. The removable stitch markers are placed daily so I can see the progress. Sometimes when knitting a project like this I feel like I am knitting and knitting and not seeing any progress. It has been fun each morning to seeing how much I knit the previous day.
Last night my husband and I watched a movie and I am finding the cowl is not "mindless knitting" so I pulled out the Lucy Anklets Sock I've been working on dpn one at a time. I usually do two at a time with the magic loop method.
I am enjoying see the quicker progress and the dpns are nice. I am not overly impressed with the yarn; it isn't scratchy, but neither is it super soft and yummy like the malabrigo sock yarn. I will knit other one, wear the socks and see how the yarn wears.
Speaking of malabrigo sock yarn. I picked up the above three lovely hanks/skeins after a doctor's appointment.
