Fir Wreath Cowl


I finished my husband's cowl that I started during the March snowstorm.  He is thrilled to have his very own cowl after envying the one I made for my son in law over the holidays.

While in NYC the week before the snowstorm of doom, we visited a yarn store and he picked out the wool for his cowl.  I directed him to a big ole pile of Madelinetosh and said 'you choose out of these two shelves' (yes! two shelved of Madtosh!) I love when a hand knit gift is personalized and meaningful.  He will think of me, NYC and a crazy snowstorm whenever he wears his cowl.

  2. He chose beautiful yarn and you picked the perfect pattern! I think this is a wonderful accessory to make sure your husband is warm enough to snow blow during the next crazy snowstorm.

  6. That is beautiful! So cool that your husband picked out the yarn. I'm hoping he doesn't need it for a number of months, but the way it's feeling.....
