Silky Cowl

Rio Grande (above), and Ruby (right). Two new Silky Sock colors I just finished dyeing and posted on my website.  I think Ruby would be great for dressing up a holiday outfit and/or complimenting the rich colors of the Fall. Rio Grande was inspired by a painting my great-aunt did of the view of Juarez, Mexico from across the Rio Grande river. I love the soft turquoise and violet mixed with the gold. The cowl used just 1/2 a skein of Rio Grande so I was able to knit a second one for a gift.  I cast on 79 sts using two strands held together on a size US 15 16″ circular needle. I knit in seed stitch for about 6 ” and then cast off loosely. Its soft and light and oh so nice around my neck! It’s also long enough to wrap twice.
