Nice and Cozy
I have been working on my Cozy for quite some time. I started it back in April but really had a hard time with it. I found the knit 2 through the back to be really difficult and I just couldn't find the right rythm. So I put it down for a long time and just recently picked it back up again. I switched from bamboo needles to addi turbos which definitely helped. It makes the yarn slide a lot better for the difficult stitches. I'm using Cherry Tree Hill 50/50 silk and merino in the Birches colorway. The yarn is nice and soft and I really like the colors. They are a subtle grey, white, pink and green. The pattern used a 100% silk yarn which I would think would be the same weight or maybe even thinner than what I'm using and I even cast on more stitches, but mine still looks narrower than the pattern. I'm hoping it will be wide enough once finished and blocked. It's really slow going but hopefully I'm on a roll.
