Sorry I've been gone a while. Looks like with my new job, I might only have time for once a week. However, there was a few day delay in getting my DH to email me the pictures. I wanted to show you my new cowl. It is the Stacked Eyelet Cowl, I found the pattern on Ravelry. It was a nice easy pattern.
I wouldn't mind making this again maybe even in a little stiffer yarn. I do however, like the way this turned out. I like the way it drapes. I plan on wearing it a lot with a top, not necessarily to keep warm. Speaking of warm, it was NOT warm here this morning. I don't know what the "official" temperature was, but when I got up this morning, there was white stuff on the ground, no, not snow, but a heavy frost. I will need to go check the tomatos, they may be done. Thanks for all your nice comments for my birthday, and I hope you do go or did go see the movie "Fireproof"! It really was awesome!
These photos are of the swap package I sent to my partner in September. Sorry for the one where everything is already wrapped, I forgot to take a picture, and I really wanted to get it out, so I didn't unwrap everything.
I put things in there like crochet grips, row counter, a sample of "Soak", some "Handemade" labels and a few other things. I think she enjoyed everything. I am anxious for Octobers, the person I got is from England, that will be fun! I am trying to get my thoughts, as well as my list made for things I need or want to make (knit) for Christmas! I have some ideas, but I need to write them down, or I tend to go on to the next "great thing" I am really in no hurry for Christmas to get here. I guess that's all the catching up I have, I don't want to ramble...some might be saying......to late :). Thanks for visiting, and Happy Fall!
