Big Herringbone Cowl

This will eventually be the Big Herringbone Cowl from The Purl Bee.  I have been eyeing up cowls in all the shops lately, but I keep telling myself I should just knit one.  So I am.  Instead of using the ever-so-soft Blue Sky Alpaca, I’m using Lion Brand’s Wool-ease.  Mostly because it’s cheaper.  Good thing I had already picked some up last week because I was in the knitting store today and felt the Blue Sky Alpaca and I couldn’t believe how soft it is!  Seriously.  We’ll have to see how this one turns out.  This one might become a gift for a friend and then I will knit myself one from that delightfully soft alpaca yarn.  I suppose it will depend on how long it takes to make.

Anyone want to knit along with me?
