Some Progress

The new year brings a new knitting scheme for Oogy and myself.  Each month this year we will challenge each other/ourselves to learn a new skill, or tackle a project we've long wanted to do.  We've called this scheme Thing-a-Month. (see Oogy's post, too).
The project for January is the BFF Cowl from the Deep Fall issue of Knitty.  Oogy is making 2 links in  dark grey, while I am making 2 in light grey.  After considering a number of yarn options, we settled on the yarn that the pattern calls for--Scrumptious Aran by Fiberspates.  It is scrumptious, indeed.  We decided to choose our own pattern and to keep it secret until the pieces are sent, so I'm only showing a tiny bit of what I'm working on.  We are aiming for pieces that measure 6 inches wide and 26 inches long.  As you can see, my first piece has worked out nicely.  A great way to begin the year!

You go, Neuro! At least one of us is paying attention to gauge ;)
