FO Friday: Calm Cowl

It's been a while since I crocheted anything, so I was perhaps overdue. I started this cowl very early in the morning in the Cologne airport on my way back home from H+H last month. I'd read that most airports in Germany didn't allow ANY knitting needles past airport security, and figured I shouldn't chance it - so I planned to pack all my knitting WIPs and just take a crochet projects on the return flight home.
I'd packed some yarn for the project, which in hindsight I realize was a silly thing to do because I brought home SO MUCH yarn. I ended up using one of those skeins instead - Merino Cloud from ArtYarns. While I didn't get as much crocheting done on the flight home, I was glad I had something to do, because it was a long trip (14 hours doorstep to doorstep). 
This is the third time I've crocheted the Calm Cowl, which is available for free on Ravelry. It's pretty easy to do, although I still sometimes have issues with making neat and tidy (ie, invisible) joins for each round. 
It's a nice, soft cowl that will be good to wear in the springtime, or it might go into the gift barrel for later this year. I'm not sure yet! 

Thanks for stopping by - have a crafty weekend!
