Finally a Finished Object

I made a cowl.

A friend gave me about 500 grams of enormous alpaca yarn. It's like pencil roving, but held together with a tiny thread wrapped around it all. I used my one 25 mm needle, and my one 19 mm needle. I think that somewhere I have two 15s, but that might have been too tight.

Arthur is off to university in Ottawa, and found himself a nice warm down jacket, but without a hood. I just had to wrap him in alpaca warm snuggliness! 

He can even pull it up over his head, if he forgets his hat. 

Really, he loves it
Now we are off for one more week of family holiday before we take him to his new residence.
