revisiting an old favourite

When I spend a weekend at the cottage, I tend to overpack the knitting. (Surprised? I thought not...) This summer seems to be all about the smaller projects, which is a good idea when it gets hot. So, socks and blanket squares have been the norm so far. But this past weekend, I tossed in a UFO that had been hanging around, and it caught my attention. So much so that, other than car time (which I save for socks), it was all I knit on this weekend.
Meet jeweled cowl, version 2.0. I've knit this before in a peachy/grey mix cashmere laceweight. This one is a richly toned green fingering weight merino/silk mix. I like the slightly heavier feel of the fingering weight, and the tonal green beads match perfectly.
I'm hoping I can stay reasonably committed to this project - I;d love to finish it before it gets put aside yet again...

The color of the yarn is gorgeous! Is it Hand dyed? What brand/dyer?

Hope you stay committed to it!

Sometimes it's nice to get a UFO out of the house.
