Are you looking for some sorbet? I mean an easy but satisfying knit project? Maybe you want something mindless but speedy? Maybe you are stocking up the pile of possible gifts? Maybe you have a skein of expensive bulky yarn and need a showcase that requires only a short amount of yardage? Maybe you love and admire the creativity of the Mason Dixon Knitters and want to pay homage by making this pattern?
I have been working away on a few things, but I am most excited to tell you about a cowl pattern I found. A quick and easy knit comprised of garter stitch, with a slipped stitch at the start of each row and after every three garter ridges, a yarn over row. Bulky yarn and larger needles means it is speedy and the end result is a great gift or an accessory piece for you.

|The edges have a slipped stitch, which gives such a cool finish. Easy to do, too.|
|Granted this is not truly finished, it still needs some knock out buttons and blocking, but I had to show you this colorful, gloom blocking, warmth insuring project that I know I will be reaching for once the winter doldrums descend.|

If we are all there bidding against each other for these beauts, the price might increase.... Or you could use Rasta as the webpage pattern suggests. Just cast on 15 stitches using a size 13 or 15 needle.
Leave me a comment if this project might find its way into your knitting basket.
