It has been raining nonstop for six days and I am pasted into my studio easy chair, unmoving, except to return to my bed later in the day. Reading mysteries and knitting and unknitting have filled my days, while the rain is filling up every dimple in the yard, inviting mosquitos to breed, keeping us indoors.
I am thinking about cooler weather and what to do about the draftiness I usually feel at the back of my neck. This collar might be the answer.
My previous solution were these shortie shawls, but the ties kept getting into the dishwater, and really aren't they a little too glamorous to wear daily?
This is the place I need to keep warm, and yet not too warm, hence the openess of the collar.
I scoured the pages of Ravelry thinking I wanted to make a cowl, which is so fashionable these days. But alas I do not have the luxury of a long swanlike neck, as doth this beauty display.
Nope. Cowls usually look like this on me...
So I designed this Draft Dodger and used Poems yarn because I had it leftover and knew I wasn't going to use it for anything else...not my fave colorway. But now that I have worked out the kinks, I think I will find something in my stash that will be more me and make a second one.
