Another finished object, its almost as if I have rediscovered my mojo! I have to say I think this pattern helped. This is the Choose colour! Cowl by Maddie Harvey. I struggle to articulate things some times and this is one of these times. It has been a long time since I knit a pattern that just glides off the needles, it doesn't require much brainpower, I did this in under a week. It is so easy to memorise, so excellent for tv watching, or social distance picnics.

I honestly don't have much to say about this pattern as I didn't have any issues with it. Apart from doing the join wrong twice. Just follow the pattern guys, don't go rouge-like I did. IT'S NOT WORTH IT! 
First up I Kitchenerd right sides facing each other...which leaves a ridge. That got hauled out. Then I did it correctly (wrong sides facing) then I noticed I hadn't lined up the pattern properly (there is a section that runs all the way around that is a really lovely squishy stitch). Could I live with it? NOPE. so out it came again. 
It's not like there were really good instructions in the pattern!

The cowl is wrapped round the top of my head like a head band and my hand is under my chin hiding my double chins

This set was created to raise money for Marie Curie, with £5 from each set going to the charity. They were inspired by my mum's collection of sweet williams flowers. You can check out this post for a bit more info and some flower photos.

I feel like I am coping out with not saying much about this pattern, but it's excellent. I wouldn't change anything if I made another. It's perfect for mini skeins and leftovers as you just stripe them through giving a really lovely colour change. Its everything I wanted. And of course, Maddie is awesome.
