As would be expected, my needles have been busy with summer cowls as well. Kindreds. Liz was working on the Fillory Cowl pattern when I was up in Alaska visiting this February March, so I optimistically started one for summer in Wild Ginger and Orchid.
The Gemini in me then immediately coveted an opposite. In preparation for a trip to Georgia, and to sate my neon craving, I looked again to Liz for inspiration, and decided to knit a Clapotis in eye-scorching coral. The yarn is Dream in Color Everlasting Sock in Tang.
I find it surprisingly difficult to find neons in non-acrylic yarn, but this skein of Tang fit the bill. I knit fewer than the recommended number of repeats, blocked fairly heavily, crocheted the two shorter ends together, and ended up with exactly what I wanted: a geometric openwork neon cowl. How's that for specific?
Another great neon that I recently picked up was Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool in Citrine.
What's your favorite neon?
