I was able to fit scarves, cowls and afghans into my favorite bin. Everything has been tagged with project name and fiber content on the back of my old business cards. Of course, the phone is wrong, but hey, I might attract more followers.
Here are the shawls, which I will get to next month. I am actually notice more room in my garage residence. The funny thing is that while i tagging everything for charity, I decided to keep the more quality fibers for myself…like…
The white yarn, I am not even sure is – technically – yarn; it is more like the stuff you might find inside your mattress. Hence the project name – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by The Eurythmics.

Ever since a long past yarn stash organization, I thought these two yarns would go well together. Now that I am trying to make a dent in my yarn stash, I finally got around to making this cowl. The white yarn (A, B, & C) are actually three shades that I used in order from light to dark.
The construction is a double-strand of the white and the Trendsetter Joy in Garter stitch with a seam at the end.
Making this cowl was slow going – about two to three weeks – mostly because I did not want the little ribbons to be caught between the stitches. I could have just knitted it, gone back afterwards and freed them, but I am so anal retentive, I figured I might as well free them while knitting. The white yarn presented problems as well because of the fibrous composition, requiring slow knitting so as to minimize fiber tangles.
