In Georgia, autumn is the perfect interlude between the long, hot, humid days of summer and the bone-chilling ice storms of winter.  Autumn means back to school and football games; warm days and cool nights.  It’s the perfect time of year for a small cowl worn over a sweater or under a light jacket.

The soft texture of Manos del Uruguay’s Silk Blend makes it an ideal yarn choice for a little added warmth right next to the skin.  The striated colorways of the yarn adds a subtle dimension to the  textured pattern of this cowl.

I purchased this beautiful skein of yarn at The Needlepoint Joint in Ogden, Utah.
