It's a cosy cowl that I think will be great once it gets properly cold here. The pattern is Seashore Cowl from Starling Knits and Crafts.

I altered the pattern a little, as I wanted a longer and narrower cowl than the pattern gives. Mine is three repeats of the lace with 20 rows of stocking stitch in between each.

I haven't blocked it yet, and don't know whether to. I'm not sure the pure silk will hold a blocking very well and I don't think it will make much difference to the Angel.
I used about 3/4 of a skein of silk (so around 300 metres) and one ball of the Debbie Bliss Angel. I actually bought 3 balls of Angel, I'm tempted to get some more to make a plain sweater.
