A New Project

At the moment crochet is hurting my arm, so the Grannie Goes Large Blanket is on hold.  I wanted to work on something other than the sock and my Aniversario pullover (which is only waiting for sleeves, but I'll have to Magic Loop them and I'm putting it off).

So I decided to cast on for another project.  Back in 2014 I knit a cowl/poncho type thing, but I didn't alternate skeins.  When the first skein ended and the second skein began, there was a definite color shift because the second skein was darker than the first.  I thought I could ignore it.  I couldn't.  I would put it on, try to wear it, and before I'd make it out the door, I had taken it off.  The color shift was just not working for me.  Earlier this week, I frogged it and I've started a new cowl, and this time I'm alternating skeins.
Jessica Jones cowl
The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere in Rock The Olive.  The pattern is Jessica Jones.  It's all linen stitch.  It's OK though.  I've knit linen stitch before so I know what I'm signing up for.  I think it will be perfect in this yarn and I have another skein, so when I finish the cowl, I will be able to make a pair of fingerless mitts.  I'll have a matching set!  How often does that happen?

I hope you all have a great weekend!

That's going to be lovely. And this looks like just what I need in a knitting project just now. Thanks for sharing!
