So Fast It Won't Make Your Head Exactly Spin

This is probably the quickest knit I've had in quite some time. Clocked in at under 10 days. Zowie! Watch out!

It's a cowl for a friend's MIL who needs a scarf for her face to protect her from the cold due to medical issues. Scarves are bulky and a full face cover may not be optimal when going in and out of buildings. Enter the amazing cowl.

Purple is her favorite color. It's my least liked color next to pink. But, you grit your teeth when knitting for a greater good.
