Circo Cowl Mystery Knitalong Progress - Clue 2

I finished the second clue for Laura Nelkin of Nelkin Designs' Circo Möbius MKAL in Knitcircus Greatest of Ease in Ice Pop. I love it! It reminds me of jolly ranchers.

Circo Gauge Swatch

I have been working on the gauge swatch while waiting impatiently for the Nelkin Designs Circo Mystery Knitalong (MKAL). I confess I often bypass making a gauge swatch for shawls, scarves and cowls because the are usually one size. However, for this project, which uses a gradient and every bit of the skein, it is important to make sure you are getting gauge so you have enough yarn.

Circo Cowl MKAL

I am constantly working on store samples so I know how the yarns I recommend and sell will work in a project. It is very important to us to have what I call "inventory integrity." In other words, what we carry to sell is what we would buy ourselves.I decided that I needed to take a break from work knitting and make something for myself. Laura Nelkin's latest mystery knitalong project, the Circo Cowl, is launching September 15.
