FO Knitted Cowl

Finally! Something finished, but not one that’s been on the needles for a while. The yarn is a souvenir skein of Handmaiden Cashmere and Silk from Loop in Santa Barbara. The pattern is a variation of the Pashmina Cowl from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. At first I was grumpy because it turned out wider than I expected, but now I like that I can loop it over my head. It’s very airy but SO warm. Also, I’m experimenting with a new bathroom-mirror-photo technique — not bad, eh?

 

Life’s too busy for more rambling, unfortunately. More knitting content: I’m having the BEST time shopping for my Secret Santa, to be gifted next Sunday. It’s a mixed blessing that I haven’t seen my regular knitting pals for a while — I’m so bad at keeping secrets!

 

Hope your holiday season is restful….

  1. Nice! that’s one cool cowl! I just whipped up a phone condom for my new phone — pictures to be added shortly… ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve also set up a new blog with my students (a group of 6 who are in danger of not graduating — I set up the blog with the hope of culling more writing out of them — so far it’s worked!) I’d love for you to take a look at what they’re up to and maybe even share it with your students! I would be great for my inveterate New Yorkers to connect with some of their peers on the west coast.
