I knit this royal blue cowl as a gift last month, and since knit 3 more, in different colors. One is a gift, the other two, I may keep for myself. They're great easy projects to work on and not have to think. Very simple and quick. Great for use of scrap yarn as well, because they only use about one skein. Hasn't been hot here yet, so I can still hold yarn in my lap. Probably not for long!
