Is there a better name for a quickie project than, Wham Bam Thank You Lamb!? I don't think so.
Started during a work lull last night, and I may have cursed myself by doing so (late call--late time clocking out), I finished it up this afternoon. It's another project for, Haven, a shelter for abused women, and our Ravelry knitting group, Knit for Good.
It took, maybe, 5 hours, due in no small part to the yarn, Lion Brand Wool Ease--Thick and Quick (another stash-buster). I lost the ball band, but it's a heathered charcoal color. The cowl is a garter stitch rectangle with the cast on and bind off edges seamed asymmetrically. It's gorgeous. I need one of these, too.
The pattern? Free on Ravelry, and no lie, quick and very cheap. This is in keeping with my premise that anything knit from stash didn't cost me a dime.
