In the Garden

In the garden there grew... Forget Me Not's and Bleeding Hearts.
A cowl of lace and wool.

Despite the fact that it is June, it has felt like April here for too long. I still felt like knitting winter things last week so I whipped up this cowl. Of course I am a total follower since everyone and their mother has knit one of these. Oh well it was fun and quick.

My pattern using a stitch pattern from an old pamphlet of my grandma's.
Yarn is mine also, Knit Me Now Yarn - Warm Woolly in Choke Cherry.
Size 10 1/2 circular needles used.

I am thinking of making up some fingerless mitts too since I have about 1/2 a skein of yarn left over. We will see. I love how this turned out and it was a skein I just couldn't let go.

Up next a birthday gift for my dad and a market bag for shopping. Hope you are all having warmer weather than me! Knit On!

The cowl is sooo pretty! I love it. I might have to jump on that bandwagon too.

Pretty, I might need one of those here. It hasn't gotten above 65 yet. Look at my pics. I love you. Kiss the kids for me. I will call the next time I'm off the boat.
