Finished second cowl

Tonight I bound off my second cowl. This one is to be a Christmas present. I used the same pattern I used with the first cowl I completed a week or so ago, the "Purl Ridge Scarf" cowl pattern by Stephen West.

Finished cowl

I finished knitting my cowl scarf tonight and blocked it. The scarf is drying now.

You might recall I posted a week or so ago about wanting to knit a cowl for myself. I decided on the "Purl Ridge Scarf" cowl pattern by Stephen West.

As soon as it's dry and I get it photographed, I'll post photos. - Tom

Bulky cowl patterns

I've been thinking of knitting myself a bulky cowl scarf for this winter. Maybe a mobius style, maybe not. Maybe one that also doubles as a hood, maybe not. Does anyone have a tried and true pattern to suggest?

Holden Shawlette

I blocked this shawlette yesterday. I'm so embarrassed that it's not one of Mario's patterns. Sorry Mario - you know I'm totally dedicated to your patterns!

I'm thinking about making my partner a hat using Lamb's Pride Bulky (he desperately needs a hat.) He want to know if the yarn scratchy.

OT: Waiting for Election Returns

I'm crazed and nervous as we begin to watch the election returns. My guess is I'm not alone.

Queen Anne Lace Shawl #3 Blocked

It's true, Mario. After completing it last fall, I finally blocked my Queen Anne's Lace Shawl #3. I have to say it's a variegated whirlwind (nightmare) as I had expected.

Finally Blocked my "Summer Into Fall" shawl

I finished knitting this in early July and just finally got around to blocking it today. Here's a picture of it drying on my blocking board. I used JaggerSpun Maine Line 2/8 in curry color.

My first Niebling

Here's an in-progress photo of my first Niebling, "Lotus Flower". I have to say it's the most complicated pattern I've knit to date. It's going fine, just real slowly.
