This fabulous Birthday Cowl knit by my co-SAM KAL hostess, and computer whiz (yes, you make the blog look good!) and friend Karen. I saw it on her blog and commented...well you know how I love red. Next thing I knew....
It was in my possession! I've been wearing it all winter long...so soft, snuggly and warm! Often didn't need a hat wearing it, and I did wear my Thorpe hat with it when I needed to.
When last we saw my Bounce Hat it was early October. It was set aside for other things and I guess I wasn't feeling the love of the colorway knitting it. So, once I found out the colorway used in my cowl above....I found a skein and let it marinade for a bit (you know for good flavor, texture....)
See the big squishy ribs!
Mug shot pose! Cristi warned me it blocks big. I only needed to block it just a bit to make sure it was roomy enough.
Eye in the sky shot....hey not bad for one handed. My assistant had other plans and couldn't be interrupted..heh!
Top of the Malabrigo to you! Wished I could have tightened the decreases, but oh well! It's so soft, squishy and comfy, I don't care!
Are you sick of the pictures yet? Thought not! Of course, it's too warm here now to wear it. I'll be in Wisconsin for next week, maybe I'll get a chance to wear it...if not always next year!
Meh..not too bad for a self portrait huh?
