Deepening Skies Cowl

I picked up this yarn (I think that is called Terra, but I can't find it on-line) intending to make a scarf out of it for my sister-in-law Lauren for her birthday. After much swatching and not a little swearing I decided to cal it quits and stop trying to make this loosely spun yarn do what is didn't want to do. The only problem is that at his point I was almost out of time and needed to make something, and did not have time for do-overs. So I used my Calming Waves pattern and whipped up a cowl for her birthday. I think is turned out well, but I don't think that I would buy this yarn again. I just really don't like working with thick and thin yarn.
