Finished Object: Super Secret Honey Cowl

I can finally reveal the supre secret Christmas present I was working on - because it is now in the recipient's hands! Or, around her neck as the case may be. My friend, Cindy, is moving away to colder climes, and I am going to miss her immensely. She has been a huge source of knowledge at work, and I am really afraid of floundering when she leaves in the new year. I hope this soft and warm cowl keeps her comfortable in her new surroundings.

The Particulars:

Pattern: Honey Cowl by Madelinetosh (Rav link)

Needles: Size 8 Aero circulars - 32"

Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino in Green Grey - 2 skeins

Would I knit this pattern again? Absolutely - it is a simple pattern and I really love the results. There was not much variegation to this particular Malabrigo color, but I would love to try this again in a color with more changes.
