Back in May I won a giveaway at Yarndancer's blog. Thank you once again! And I got a skein of wonderful Manos Silk Blend. I was looking for a nice pattern to use up all the yarn and chose Herringbone Cowl. Slipped stitches show variegated yarns best. I was knitting and knitting and thought it was big enough already, but there was still yarn left. That's when it dawned on me that I had a 100g skein of Manos. So, I still have 50g left for something else. This pattern is excellently written by Lauren. What I love is that it's hardly noticeable where the row ends/ begins. I quite enjoyed the zigzag knitting and it was not hard at all to memorize when to turn.
