Catching UP!

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 late :). Thanks for visiting, and Happy Fall!

I like that cowl. I want to make some for Christmas gifts so I might need to go snag that pattern.

Sounds you are BUSY!!!

I love the cowl though - been wanting to make one for myself - just think they are cute to wear instead of a scarf - or just because they are cute!!!

Those would be good Christmas gifts too - not too hard but still very cute!

Your cowl is lovely! I'm going to have to make one of those now.
Hope your work doesn't steal you away from us. We may have to kidnap you if that happens. :)

That's a lovely cowl. I'm liking the idea of knitting myself some neck warmers and fingerless gloves, they are so fast and easy to knit. not that I have the weather for them yet mind you, it cooled down to 85 today!!

The drape of this yarn is great for a cowl. It looks wonderful!
