I began knitting another cowl Sunday afternoon when Jon & Sophia went for a bike ride. They disappeared and I got a call that they were at our neighbor’s house, drinking beer! Well, Jon was drinking beer, anyway. So I had some quiet time on my hands for at least a half hour and decided to make some headway on another holiday gift.
I was only able to knit on this project three times this week and am amazed at how quickly the project was completed. Here is the red cowl:
Sorry for showing a picture with the ends not sewn in, but I was trying to take this photo with a grumpy kid who wanted to play with the camera. I would have taken the time to really finished it, but Sophia rather likes my little kit of knitting & crocheting tools and I cannot have it out around her. Those loose ends are now finished.
The cowl is much longer than the previous one. I cast on 70 stitches this time – and I like this better. It covers much more of your neck than the previous one. I’d show a picture of me wearing the cowl, but none of them turned out well.
Since it’s going to take me an hour or more to wind the next skein into a ball of yarn, I better get to work on that so I can knit something else sometime in the the near future!
