For this cowl I was able to use up more than 1.5 skeins of my stashed Madelinetosh DK in Hosta Blue. I had two skeins left over from my Lush since June and never knew what to use it for. The Honey Cowl had been a possibilty for a while but something didn't feel quite right. I liked the pattern but maybe the colour wasn't interesting enough. Then I came across a modified version with two colours on Julie's blog and knew that was the way I wanted to go too. I ordered one more skein in Worn Denim and those two colours are just made for each other. I love how the Worn Denim changes from an intense blue to almost brown and back again.
I wasn't quite sure how to wear it. It felt a bit akward when it was open, too much weight in the front somehow. When worn double it was a bit on the short side but I after I had it blocked it gained a few inches (it's now 48 inches wide) and now I think it fits nicely.
