FO: Nusa

Yay Nusa! I did manage to finish this by the KAL deadline last Friday, but I only just got around to taking pictures yesterday! I love this cowl so much-it's so light and airy, and a great length for a warm-weather cowl.

I went back and forth a little bit with yarn choice for this. I didn't know if I wanted merino singles or merino-silk singles, and I am so glad I went for the silk. It's got such a rich texture, and a little bit of a sheen, and it's definitely a nice cowl. I already talked a bit about trying to choose colors-I probably had 20 tabs open with different colorways before I decided on these two!

I didn't make any mods while knitting this. The lace was a bit tricky, but most of that was probably due to the fact that I knit the first half of it in a dark auditorium (great planning, Kat). The stripes really zoomed by-I love having color changes to mark progress like that!
