I finished my Honey Cowl so I needed to get some photos for my Ravelry project page. My standard mug shot doesn't tell you much.
Neither did this pose. I am afraid it needed a neck.
Standing in front of the bedroom mirror didn't work. Too dark.
Taking it outside made the cowl look better but made me look like a California raisin having a bad hair day.
The bathroom mirror worked best. That's me, still sans makeup and a hair brushing but at least the scary wrinkles are softened a bit with the bright lights right in my face.
As for the cowl, it turns out I like it. It wasn't exactly what I consider a fun knit but it is surprisingly stretchy and comfortable. I also like the rolled edging. It gives it a good solid feel.
My one disappointment is with the inside. I chose this pattern because it claims that it is "lovely on both sides". I don't think the back side is hideous but it is certainly not lovely. Just sayin'......
