A long time ago in a land far, far away, a friend and co-worker (Koryn) gave me a special skein of yarn, which she spun herself. Nice!
It has been percolating in my stash all this time. I finally made this cowl with it, from my Christina Cowl pattern.
I cast on an extra 7 sts in order to make it just slightly larger than the originals, as they were a little snug. They weren't uncomfortable, but they kinda looked more like a turtleneck than a cowl.
