The last cowl has finally dried and now I can post a photo for the three of them. I'm only creating one project page on Ravelry. These cowls are delightfully soft and lush. 100% Alpaca wool is something to feel in the hands while knitting. Also, the alpaca will give a nice drape when the cowl is worn.
I know I swore off this pattern, but I have two more alpaca skeins that are begging me to make a fourth cowl. I also need to make one more in pink for a holiday gift for my dog groomer/dog trainer friend (mother of the toddler). You've been forewarned.
I started a new shawl this morning, yet another holiday gift. I needed a super simple knit that needs minimal attention or notions in the bag for my work days when the toddler is napping. I picked the spindrift shawl, which I knitted before and loved the pattern.
Last night, I started a hat with larger needles and hopefully I'll have a bit more common sense on sizing. Love the red and gray wool together.
I finished this hat two days ago and was sad that it came out too small for the intended head I was knitting for. I will save this hat to put in my knitting present box (yes I have a box of knitted gifts at the ready) or I will donate this hat. I love how it turned out, but it's a bit wee.
What have you been knitting or crafting these days?
