This definitely fit the bill.
This was just what I needed, a very quick project.
Now I may need to cast on with something new, since I hear we have a very light schedule for Board of Review. Maybe this?
Same pattern in "Dragon" colorway. The finished Cowl is in Kimono colorway. It is totally brainless. I may at least cast on and knit the first row tonight to have it as backup. Of course I need to hand wind this skein again too.
But I do have this to get going on too.
This is (obviously) a Crazy Zauberball and I will be making a pair of helical striped Mitts after I finish the cuff. It is lesson one in the Year of Techniques being featured on Mason Dixon Knitting. Next pattern is out April, so I may fall behind but each pattern is a new technique featured on a quick pattern.
I can almost guarantee I will fall behind.
