I finished the green silk/wool cowl today; it's happily blocking on the bed. While it isn't perfect, I'm pleased with it. Now, I'm doing a sample of Arrowhead Stitch to see whether I like it enough to do a whole big silk shawl out of it. I thought I might to Rosebud mesh, but found the stitch pattern too complicated for me. The pattern I used for the cowl, Urns, is symmetrical within each 12-stitch repeat, so it was easy to remember each block long enough to finish the row without constantly checking the pattern.

It's very stormy today, with wind, rain, and lightning, but at least it's not snowing.
