But after the sweater and the Sockhead Hat (which was miles and miles of ribbing and stockinette,) I felt the need for something quick. So, I cast on.
Well, first I had to hand wind this so I could knit.
As you may be able to read from the label it is mostly bamboo. Actually it is bamboo rayon, with some wool and a touch of acrylic.
After a couple days of knitting, including a near needle disaster I am doing quite well. The tip came off the cable, leaving several inches of stitches swinging free. I dug out a darning needle and heavy thread, and put them on a lifeline. From there I was able to put them back on the needles and catch the ones that dropped back a row or two and all is well.
Did I mention it is going to be a cowl? Easy peasy knitting, with some watching the one needle tip.
