We have a beaded cowl!!!!!!

It is, however, not a mobius strip.  It is a cowl with a full twist in it.  Now, of course, that makes sense.  For it to have become a mobius strip, I would have needed to manage to have the top edge meet up with the bottom one when I joined them.  So.....I have a rather bizarre knitted object....which can't be blocked in the normal method.

Oops.  Time for a bit of ironing bit by bit

and the finished object:
It's still rather pretty, and there are some purplish beads on it that just don't show up in pictures, but it isn't exactly what I had in mind.  BUT--the March Project of the Month is officially done!!!!

Not to waste any time, my sidekick and I moved on to the ostrich plumes scarf,
(some of us more literally than others)
See that tiny bit of scarf sticking out by his ear?  Yeah--that would be the scarf I was going to work on.  He's such a helper.

Part of me really wants to pull out another project bag and dive in, but I think I'm going to make a couple more sets of coasters while the material is out.  Janet had a great suggestion about using a twin needle to stitch the ribbon down, which would be great. 

Project number 18 done!!!!!!!  82 to go!

Your knitting is amazing. Where do you find the time to get it all done? I am in awe!

Beautiful cowl! Is it for you or is it a gift-to-be?

That's pretty whacky, but I think it looks darned elegant!

The cowl is beautiful! (And I'm trying not to think about the X number of projects left to go... too demoralizing, at least until after the halfway point!)

PS. How much yardage did the cowl take? I have an odd skein I've been thinking about doing something similar with...
