Manly Virginia

Today I give you..... the Virginia Cowl. Only this one is not so much cowl, as short scarf with button fastening. As soon as I saw the pattern, I wanted to make it, but those chunky cables spoke to me of man, not woman.

I had some perfect yarn in the stash, that I'd been meaning to make my husband a scarf with, so that was an easy choice. Mirasol Ushya is a chunky yarn that's plied with what looks like a crochet chain. It's a pretty cool construction, that I've never seen before - it makes the strand thick, but airy.
The buttons are another SAFF find. Very manly, eh!And here he is in all his wooly, manly, buttony glory. Should keep my husband warm this winter :0)This was a nice easy pattern to follow. Garter stitch and cables. You can't go wrong. Well, you could, but that's another story, right.
I'm loving this rash of blog-posting everyone's doing for NaBloPoMo. It's so good to catch up with all the incidentals people post during this time.

Happy Day 3.
Disco xo

When I was glancing thru my feed reader I thought this said "Manly Vagina." It's possible I have girls on the brain. Regardless, that is quite the manly cowl. :-)
