WIP-it Wednesday...

...and I have a couple of finished objects!

First up, some spinning. I've been incorrectly calling this Iris when it's really Rose of Sharon [Ravelry]:

I finished the Alcea Cowl [Ravelry] last night. Here it is, modeled by Borg the Moose:

Finished 10/21/14;
Pattern: Alcea Cowl by Hannah Maier;
Yarn: La Jolla by Baah! in Brazilian Emerald
Loopy Academy project

I'm not completely happy with the seam, though. If I ever do another project like this, I am doing a provisional cast-on and then grafting the ends using the Kitchener method. What a pain in the neck it was trying to seam this after blocking!
