And they keep me motivated. I knitted two cowls in two days. I discovered the pattern when I saw Meretes cowl on her blog. She had found it online - and had knitted one up very fast.
I was in need of an instant project and rushed to my LYS to get some of that yarn. The cowls are so soft and warm. And so nice wearing. The yarn Eskimo is ok but it grows a lot when washed. For this project it sort of works.
Anyway, if you are in desperate need of an instant cowl you can check out The Purl Bee where the pattern is free.
