Ahhh....nothing says Fall to me more than Pumpkin. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin cupcakes/muffins/bread, pumpkiny colors and smells....sigh...it is my favorite!
So, when Carrie asked for test knitters I knew just the yarn I wanted to use. Funny thing is, it was the exact yarn base she wanted me to use. GMTA or what ;)
Not the best picture here, but I wanted you to see just how scrunched up you can wear it.....
Or not! It goes with my gray winter coat so well. I'm so glad I got that color as I can use hats/cowls/shawls for pops of color. My usual looking off to the side, almost covering my nose cowl photo.
Even better picture here.
My new backdrop of stones in my backyard :) I love my new photo areas.
As you can see it's a gradual sloping cowl. Bigger for the lower neck/shoulder area and just right for under your neck. You can also tell how the cables pull it in a bit. I'm sure you could block it more aggressively but I didn't want to.

No mods, since it was a test knit I even did a swatch. I was .5 sts over on the swatch, row gauge was fine, but I liked the fabric so I continued with the 8's.
Love this yarn, it's so soft to knit with and so far wear. Too bad I only have .75 oz of a skein left :(
