I gifted the cowl to my friend who has just retired from UNC Law where I teach. This is basically her favorite, and arguably only, color. The day I gave it to her, she was wearing a sweater the exact same shade. It was weird.
Also, for those who don't know, this is sometimes called "Carolina Blue." We lay claim to a wide range of shades, from this greenish blue to a more French blue to sky blue.
Here's some proof:
Notice the greenish blue of the 1980s, a different shade from the sky blue of the 1990s and today. Also, we like to win national championships. (It's almost March!).
Okay, back to business. Here's the cowl again:
I'm really glad I added the handspun in there to give it loft. The Stellina yarn just doesn't have any, despite being 50% wool.
