This is not...

a hold up I promise ;)

It was the best way to show off this pattern!
Oh Noes!!
Look into my eyes....I shall entrance you......

You know me and cowls lately...um...this is like #3 and I have one that was gifted to me that you'll see soon ;)
As you can see
This is the real color, even in daylight hard to photograph...

Woot an FO that hasn't been a WIP longer than 3 days!! It was sure nice to knit on size 8 needles after almost 2 weeks with size 1.5's!

That color is gorgeous! I feel you on the joy of knitting on 8's after so long on the tiny ones. It always amazes me how huge anything about maybe a 4 feels after awhile in the 1-2 range.

Love that first Zonda!! Too funny!!

Ahhhh....the plucky aran cashmere... you're hooked for sure now!! Such a pretty cowl! I wonder if you can eeeeeeeek out a pair of short toasties for with the leftovers (you know me, I'm all about the toasties!).

Ooh I love that pattern! It's like the embossed leaves pattern but in bigger yarn!

Wow, that turned out nice! I think you might have to hold off until tomorrow to wear it though. It's going to be 80 today.

That's lovely. And it looks like I can reach right through my computer screen and squish it!

Ow. No, that didn't work.

Amanda said...

Gorgeous and soft...and I love that plummy color!

Karen said...

Lovely! I want to make more cowls for me...but am afraid that the cold will be gone before I get a chance to make and use them. And I am hoping spring comes sooooooon!!

Julie said...

So pretty!

I'm feeling sleeepy, verrry sleepy... ;)

That is gorgeous! Love the leaves! Maybe this is what I can do with my leftover Malabrigo. Hmmm...

Mag said...

A lovely FO for a wonderful yarn.

I am so covetous of that yarn in THAT color. ;-)

Hmmm, is it purple, or red? Very pretty, whichever colour.
