Pink Thermis Cowl

Last year, I made a Thermis Cowl, and it really is one of my favorites.  Since my sister has a birthday in the cold of winter, I decided to make one for her.


This pattern is particularly wonderful since it creates a nice thick, fabric that makes it extra warm, but also has some buttons to open up if you get too hot. 
The best part about this cowl, the yarn was hand dyed by me!  Yep!  And not with Easter egg tablets either, this time I went all crazy scientist in the kitchen and used acid dyes.
I think it turned out wonderful, and really love the subtle color changes - which I worked really hard to create.  Overall, it was a wonderful learning experience and it was so much fun to knit with yarn that I created.
