I asked Adam which pattern he liked better, the chevrons or the stripes. He looked at me blankly and replied, “those are synonymous in my world.”
Hmmm… guess I’m on my own with this one. I bought this Pepperberry Knits yarn at Yarnover in April. The colorway is Beachcomber. It’s 100% cashmere sport weight and it is super squishy and yummy. The question I was asking Adam (to be fair I had visual aids) was which cowl I should knit from these options.
In the end, I decided to knit the 12th Man Cowl.
FYI: If you’re planning on knitting this pattern, don’t wind your ball into a center pull ball. You’ll do the same forehead smack I did last night.
You might ask, “Jess, is this on the plan you made for winning Stash Dash?”
The answer my friends, is a resounding no. It’s not on the plan. It’s 200 yds of indulgence knitting which will count towards Stash Dash but won’t get me to the finish line quickly the way a 1500 yd sweater does. I have a craving for soft and squishy and simple right now. Oh simple stockinette stitch, you make my heart sing. At least right now you do.
Since we were talking about Stash Dash, here’s the run down on my project status.

With a month and a half of Stash Dash left to go, I’d better get moving!
