Another Virginia Cowl

Once I finished the Virginia cowl for my Mom's gift, I began one for myself using the reclaimed merino. 

It seemed too tight on size 8 needles, so I changed to size 9. But when I blocked it, it grew an inch in width. I think that's because the reclaimed wool relaxed. This is a good lesson for me, always prewash your reclaimed skeins to get the kinks out!

It's soft and fun, but cashmere is definitely snuggier than merino. :)
