Amalgam, the Journey from a Cowl to...

In June of 2016, on a particularly sultry weekend, 
TNNA was happening in Washington, DC.
Among the many beautiful fibers and friends, 
I found dear Kate of Dragonfly Fibers.  
She generously offered me a few skeins of 
Valkyrie, her lovely new superwash worsted.
I loved the twist, texture, and the colors.  

I quickly knit a deep cowl. 
A blend of Short Rows, Mosaic Colorwork, it was a joy to make.
The pattern was sent to Knitty - and Amy thought it was great, but...
Wouldn't it be nice to add some shaping? 
Sure.  I said.  It really would.

It was a really good call.  

So much fun.
