I am so in love with my cowl (more details here and on the Ravelry project page here). It has hardly left my neck since I finally finished it last Friday and gave it a good soak in hot soapy water (always alarming with wool, especially cashmere, but necessary to get the industrial oils off when you buy cashmere from here).
The stitch definition with the cashmere yarn is fabulous, and it is, of course, beautifully soft and cosy. I appreciate that it doesn't even slightly match what I'm wearing today, but I don't care even a little bit.
It was a much slower knit than I expected, but the break from quilting has been nice (I'm ready to attack hand quilting the sunshine quilt with renewed enthusiasm now) and it turned out to be well worth the wait.
