i've paid it forward in full

This was the last Pay It Forward gift I sent off. It made its way safely to Katie.

Difficult to part with, this one. To ease the sting, I got my hands on another skein of Malabrigo Worsted weight in Forest; I'll make myself a Dolores Park Cowl out of a flattering green. I'm fairly positive that this pattern has begun a Malabrigo stash craze... and I completely understand the craze that is the cowl.

I followed modifications made by Jennifer in her blog post. She knit hers on a US 8, but because I knit tightly, I used a US 9.

Oh, it is so funny that you are having a malabrigo crush, because when this arrived in the mail, I had just bought four hanks of it in pale khaki. I love it!
Again, I love, love this gift, and it goes with great with my winter coat! such a thoughtful gift!

I would have had a hard time parting with it too! That lovely purple is so pretty with your hair. I bet the green will be even better, though.

Oh, so good. In so many ways. Cowls are the best.
