Soft Lace Cowl

We had a taste of fall here for a few days.  I used the inspiration of the cool fall weather and began working on a cowl.  The temps here are back to summer with 80 degrees and high humidity but this will be waiting for the next cool day.
 I crocheted this same pattern before but used a thinner yarn.  This yarn is bulkier and I love that.  It is an alpaca blend from Lion Brand.  This pattern is worked in two sections working on both sides of the foundation chain.
 My daughter is my model but I had to promise I would not include her face.  She is camera shy.
This pattern works so well with this yarn.  It is incredibly soft and warm.  Looking forward to wearing this.

I am working on this pattern next.  I am a little behind but trying to finish it all up today or tomorrow.  I am joining in:

Last week was a busy one and I didn't pick up the crochet needles once.  We celebrated hubby's 40th birthday, helped my mom moving some furniture, cut, split and stacked about 4 cords of wood, and cleaned out most of the basement.  There has been more spring cleaning now then I had a chance to get to in spring.

Hopefully, I will have this cowl all crocheted in time.

This is beautiful and I love it in the soft grey. Since I only knit, I am always envious of all the beautiful things crocheters can make! :)
