The white yarn, I am not even sure is – technically – yarn; it is more like the stuff you might find inside your mattress. Hence the project name – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by The Eurythmics.

Ever since a long past yarn stash organization, I thought these two yarns would go well together. Now that I am trying to make a dent in my yarn stash, I finally got around to making this cowl. The white yarn (A, B, & C) are actually three shades that I used in order from light to dark.
The construction is a double-strand of the white and the Trendsetter Joy in Garter stitch with a seam at the end.
Making this cowl was slow going – about two to three weeks – mostly because I did not want the little ribbons to be caught between the stitches. I could have just knitted it, gone back afterwards and freed them, but I am so anal retentive, I figured I might as well free them while knitting. The white yarn presented problems as well because of the fibrous composition, requiring slow knitting so as to minimize fiber tangles.
