Purple Cowl - DONE!

Started Nov 7/10 Finished Nov 19/10

I've started this project for me but right now it seems really small. If it doesn't fit me I know another purple lover that will love it. It was an easy knit and pretty fast even though I had to knit it twice!

Nov 13/10 - Was finished but realized that the pattern called for size 10.5 needles. It was too small to keep. I have frogged it and started again with the right size needles.

Size: 10.5 circulars

Yarn: madelinetosh tosh dk in Thicket
