Eat.Sleep.Knit's Flash Challenge KAL

Capture cowl. ESK flash challenge. 
 Last Friday Eat.Sleep.Knit announced a flash challenge KAL.  Anyone who could knit Capture, starting Monday, March 14 and get it finished by next Monday, would get a star for their team!  We had to use 400 yards in the project.  I knew shipping something here would be tight, so I went stash diving (this is exactly why stash is important!) and found a skein of Madelinetosh Twist Light in Opaline.  The color reminds me of purple heather, although in true Madelinetosh fashion, it has other tones washed into the skein as well.

Monday rolled around and I cast on, and I was off and knitting!  I averaged one section a day, and last night I bound off.  The finished cowl is around 10 inches wide and will loop nicely around the neck twice.  I have two yards left from the skein, so not only will this project win a star for the Rabbiteers (Go Bunnies!), but I'll also get the Yarn Chicken badge from it!  (It could also potentially earn the All the Single Ladies badge and the Speedy Crafter badge, but I already earned those this year from my Honey Badger socks.)

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
