Sizing It Up

My knitting is still going in circles, and the latest cowl now feels like a small sweater in my lap.

Squeeze Me Infinity Cowl by Anne Hanson.  Her designs are always a sure bet.  I'm enjoying this project - staggered rounds of knit and purl combinations separated by three rounds of plain knitting.  It's very relaxing and just the kind of project I need right now.  

This cowl comes in three sizes, and I opted for the largest.  I can't remember my thought process on that decision - often I choose the middle size.  I'm feeling a slight case of startitis coming on, but I'm sure this will be off the needles before it's full blown.
