Alright. So I am not so big into cowls (because I don’t really ‘get’ them I guess)- but everybody else in the knitting community seems to like them so I am jumping on the bandwagon.
This is the Chickadee Cowl (free Ravelry download) that I made for my friend, Amy, for her birthday. I used about 1/2 skein of Malabrigo in the colorway Little Lovely. I like how this turned out a lot, but I think I look very uncomfortable wearing it. This is the problem with me and cowls. I think they are supposed to be on my neck like a turtleneck.
With my remaining 1/2 skein of Little Lovely, I am going to make myself a Scrunchable Hat. I think Maria’s turned out so cute, I need one for myself.
I currently have 5 WIPs if you count Jason’s recycled grocery bag.
I am working on my 2nd pair of socks for 2009 – Broadripple, from Knitty. I really like this pattern, so thanks to Andrea for suggesting it!!! Also, I’m about halfway finished with a patchwork afghan WHICH I LOVE. I can’t wait to get that finished and show it off.
I am really getting into some of the handspun yarns that are for sale on Etsy. Please suggest to me some patterns for handspun yarn!! I am getting about 145 yards of worsted weight and 176 yards of thick/thin DK-worsted weight. Maybe a hat or a short scarf. I need some suggestions!!!
