Pattern: Ice Maiden Cowl by Sybil R (on Ravelry)
Yarn: Malabrigo Arroyo (variegated) and Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light (burgundy)
Next technique involves sock yarn. I've never knit socks (aside from a worsted pair of house socks) so I'm hoping to learn something new. I rarely pay much attention to sock patterns that come my way (in magazines, in books, on websites) so I will have to think about what I can reasonably knit. For now, I'll wear my new cowl and hope for a breezy, sunny but cool day!
