I finished up the fingerless mitts for my friend and managed to cast on and cast off her cowl. I am hoping to drop them off to her later today or tomorrow.
Once I finished up the cowl I promptly cast on a little something for myself. This is an easy and fun knit, and promises to be just what I need to keep me warm on these very cold days we are experiencing right now.
On the reading front I picked up a magazine that has been sitting in the to read pile for two months. I always enjoy reading this one and this time was no different. I am still enjoying Use Your Words and getting back into my doula reading.
What are you knitting and reading?
Joining in with Ginny and Nicole.
You're knitting up a storm!ReplyDelete
That scarf you're knitting for yourself might be something I'd like to try as well, I'd crochet it, but I mean that it's a loop.
Have a wonderful day!
I am definitely trying :)Delete
You are knitting with a furry! I should have posted today but I've been so busy with my mom and vacationing an all. I cast on a tiny tea leaves for V and have been working though that. Last week I cast on and cast off a hat for D in three days, record for me! Next week I will post it when I have nice pictures of everything! Have a great day.ReplyDelete
Oh yes I'm going to try the Honey cowl too. After the tiny tea leaves...
Sounds like you are knitting up a storm to KC :) Can't wait to see the tiny tea leaves.Delete
I love cowls that can be wrapped twice around the neck :) You have been quite the busy knitter this week :)ReplyDelete
I hope I do too, this will be my first one. Fingers crossed I like it.Delete
I have heard so much about the honey cowl! Looks lovely - and your friend is going to love her mitts and cowl - so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Me too, that is why I had to give it a try, so many yarn alongers knitting it. Thank you!Delete

Wow! Those look lovely! I love the look of cables with the twist look! Still haven't figured out how to do that with crochet...ReplyDelete
Thanks Maria. I wish I could help you on that one, but I don't crochet...yet :)Delete
Love your cable work! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Lovely work! You have me wanting to dive back into Use Your Words. Hopefully one day soon! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Sara. I am really enjoying it and trying to stretch myself a bit with my writing...we will see where it goes.Delete
Lovely Knitting! I have that honey cowl pattern in my que to try sometime, but as I already made myself two new cowls this winter, it may be a next winter project! I am working on a lace weight sweater for myself from some yarn I have been dying to use that I picked up at the NH Sheep and Wool Festival......and it's looking good! Happy knitting!ReplyDelete
Oh that sounds like a lovely project to be working on. Can't wait to see it!Delete
