A very belated “Happy New Year” to you all. New Year’s Eve and Day found me camped out on the sofa nursing a cold. I had my sweet Lillie, a nice warm blanket, my knitting, and a book to keep company.
On New Year’s Eve, I finished my Gifted Cowl, a free pattern from Churchmouse. I finally blocked it last weekend and have yet to wear it. It has a bit of “bling” to it and for those of you who know me, you know I don’t like a lot of bling but this I find to be a very subtle bling. And I think it is something that I’d wear. If I decide I don’t care for it after all, it’ll be gifted to a lover of bling. The cowl is a very easy pattern and has instructions for all weights of yarn which makes it a fine pattern in my book.
I finished my Itineris shawl last week. I blocked it over the weekend and wore it to work yesterday. I forgot to take pictures wearing it so here are the ones from the finished object official photo op.
