So, you know how ravelry started putting project spotlights up? If not, here’s how it works. When you go to a pattern page on ravelry and click on the “projects” tab, you’ll go to a list of all the ravelry projects that were made from that pattern. Somewhat recently, rav started putting three projects at the top that are labelled “project spotlight”. It’s a way of highlighting projects, I guess. I’m not sure how they’re chosen, but I know they rotate periodically.
I was glancing at my projects page a bit ago and realized my Honey Cowl in Manos had a couple more favorites than it used to. I’m not sure what made me think of it, but I checked the pattern page and, sure enough, my project is in the spotlights! How cool is that?
I’m super stoked about it because that’s one of the projects I’m most proud of. It was one of those things that just sort of came together. I blogged about it here. I love how the two color version turned out, and it was a fun and easy knit. I used up almost every inch of three skeins of yarn, which always feels good! The yarn I used (Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend) was luscious and lovely to work with. Plus, it was a gift for a very good friend, so it was a rewarding project all around.
It was a little tricky to photograph, but I was able to get a couple of decent shots:
I especially like how both sides look cool:
