Toasty Fall Neckwarmers

I am a scarf girl if you haven't guessed by now. I am usually donning a cozy wool scarf from the first crisp day of September, to the last chilly day of April. However, sometimes a scarf is a bit bulky, sometimes it is a bit too warm, sometimes it just doesn't go with that outfit. These are the days when a cute cowl is just the thing...

This cute cabled cowl is done in a heavy worsted weight organic cotton by Blue Sky Alpaca. It was a birthday gift from my lovely mother. It is deliciously soft, and because of the heavier yarn weight, it is quite warm (but not *too* warm).

This soft grey cowl is done in a stitch pattern I made up, and is made out of some yummy Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. The lighter weight of the yarn is lovely with the warmth of the merino and cashmere, and is oh scrumptiously soft!
