I have a ton of scarves--handknit and not. However, thinking of bitter winds and ice pellets smacking my face, I had another scarf in mind. Something more cowl-like than scarf. But not a loose, gaping cowl that would allow the wind and snow to zoom and trickle down my neck.
Another type of cowl. A cowl that fits tight at the neck and that will cover about five or six inches of my chest and back. Some might call it a dickie. But I prefer to call it a Wolowitz Thermal Transfer Device aka Howard's Cowl.
Over the weekend, I knit the stitches over four needles so I could try it on. It's perfect! Snug at the neck--but, not so snug that I feel I have a boa constrictor around my neck.
I tried it on with a coat and the dic. . . uh. . . cowl is almost the right length.
Come on, Winter, show your stuff. I'm ready for ya!
