Discombobble-ated Cowl

Long fingering weight cowl with bobbles and ribbing.



It all started with a blizzard…

Being stranded in a hotel in the Midwest with nothing but a souvenir skein of yarn and a lot of time on my hands, I cast on stitches with no plan in sight. And then there were bobbles…

Lessons learned:

  • Knitting is more important than food (not really, but kind of).
  • Always buy the yarn.
  • Never travel to the Midwest in the middle of winter.
