Yarn Present

For Christmas, my wonderful, brilliant, talented husband (who can take a hint very well - especially one that's written down for him) gave me a ball of Qiviut*.

I'd wanted some for forever, but just couldn't bring myself to pay the $80+ for just over 200 yards of lace weight yarn.
But what yarn it is! So soft and light and warm and gorgeous. My little skein of heaven is now a long crocheted cowl, made using a variation of the Crocus Bud Shawl (Ravelry link here.)
A cowl I plan to wear at every opportunity for a long, long time. 

*Qiviut = the super soft underwool of the Arctic musk ox

Lucky Duck! I can't ever bring myself to ask for this yarn as a gift. I would be too afraid of wearing something made of it!

Wonderful...the cowl is the perfect use. In Alaska I saw cowls of quivet with the back pulled over the head and ears, and the front left to protect the neck. Looked great!!
