My Birthday

A lovely cowl I finished yesterday, since casting on New Years Eve.

It is a pattern I named “Altitude Lace Cowl”  (photographed below on sassafras walking stick my brother gave me on my birthday decades ago).

It is beautiful and I used especially for a present to myself in very plush & spendy Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn, 100g skein with oodles of yards, in the color “wellwater”

This sample is the biggest of the sizes, at 9 repeats (40″ circumference x 11″ wide).  As it is my birthday, I’d like to give-away this pattern TODAY thru Ravelry only, to all who do the following ;

Thank you! And now I’ll go on about my next birthday event by taking a walk in the woods with Emma, along our  knitting trail, while casting on another of these quick-knit lacey neck cozies.
