Cowls Completed!

I am finished! Over the past few months, I made 10 cowls to gift this Christmas. What a feather in my crafting hat! I had true intentions of showing you all the yarn I used and what patterns I made up for each one but I got lazy. I had my eyes on the prize and those intentions quickly went by the wayside. I used a Lion Brand Thick & Quick, Bernat Roving, Deborah Norville (I can't remember what kind) and sewed up a couple as well. Some were knit seed stitch, some in the round, and some plain old garter.


 I worked really hard to select colors and styles that reflected every one's personalities. There are 2 black and white houndstooths (in case you're counting) for the only guys in the bunch. Also, they're not cowls, just regular scarves. Do guys wear cowls? I would have modeled all of my handiwork for you but I didn't do my hair. Don't judge me. It was a Sunday in which I would not meet the public eye.

I wanted to show you this one because it's fancy and a little bit wild! I used Thick & Quick and also Lion Brand's Fun Fur. Very please with how it turned out. And pleased with the Christmas tree upon which to display it.

This one is my favorite! Mustard is my jam (no pun intended) and lucky for me, I bought a second skein to knit one up for myself now that all is said and done with the gifts. Don't you love the ribbing? LOVE! My arm looks creepy in this picture.

But my crafting didn't stop there. As soon as I've put the finishing touches on my Christmas day outfit, I'll tell you all about it. My back is killing me from 4 straight hours bent over my sewing machine but I'm confident it'll be worth it in the end.

Did you get all your crafty gifts finished in time? It's not too late!

  1. These are awesome. I crocheted some up too -- and did a mustard one as well! -- although I used mostly the same pattern and different yarns. Pretty proud of myself for getting more than one thing done this season! Now to finish up the last of it...
