grey and yellow knitted cowl

I thought I'd share a knitting pattern that I'm just loving.  Half the fun is buying the two colors of yarn and then the other half is the knitting to see how those two colors complement each other.
The cowl pattern is called Embers and for my first one I duplicated the yarn featured by Madelinetosh, because I just loved how that yellow peaked through.  It also was the perfect combination for a special person in my life.

After knitting two other cowls in a different pattern I decided to go back to the Embers pattern and create one for myself.  The color in the photo is showing a lot of blue, but I think it's because I shot the photo so close and in weird light.  The colors are Coquette (hot pink) and Black Velvet, which is greys and darker pink rose.  When I finish it I'll take another photo in natural light, because it really is an amazing combination.
In my desire to get the other two cowls off to their surprise recipients I forgot to take photos!  So... I'm going to beg that they take photos of themselves wearing them.  If they agree I'll post those later.  I used some lovely Malabrigo yarn for them and they're much longer.  Anyway, stay tuned!
I haven't posted in awhile!  I'll try to do better.  My thoughts and feelings have been very internally focused as I worked through some stuff.  My jewelry and fiber work has been meditative and I am thankful to have had it to keep me busy.
To my friends who have been so wonderful this past year, this is for you:
"A Friend should be radical,
They should love you when you're unlovable,
Hug you when you're unhuggable,
And bear with you when you're unbearable.
A Friend should be fanatical;
They should cheer when the whole world boos,
Dance when you get good news,
And cry when you cry too.
But most of all,
A friend should be mathematical,
They should multiply the joy,
Divide the sorrow,
Subtract the past,
And add to tomorrow,
Calculate the need deep in your heart, and always be bigger than the sum of all their parts."         ~Billy Sprague
