Another Cowl

Pin It Although it is the middle of May, the temperatures lately have been so chilly, it feels almost like fall is in the air!

With this chiller weather, I have felt like picking up the knitting needles and doing some more work on cowls.  I don't mind having the yarn sit on my lap when we have the rainy cool temperatures and this way they will be done and ready to wear once the real autumn rolls around!

I have been trying to use up my stash...my stash of fabric, my stash of craft supplies and my stash of yarn.  Sometimes we can get a little bogged down by enough projects that will last well past death!



Starting this cowl a while ago, I felt the need to pick it up again and finish it.  I have to say it is a very easy pattern and in no time I was casting off.  I used yarn from the stash and although I liked how the variegation worked out at the top of the cowl, I am not sure about the lower half......the colors tended to gather in 'blocks' as you can see.  



Oh well, I can at least say that this is another UFO completed and if all else fails, I can wear it around the farm!  Oh gosh, I really need to update my Ravelry page!


I do think I will make another with yarn that would be better suited to this project.  What can I finish up now while the rain won't quit?

Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  3. Very cute and you look great in it. I myself can't wear anything around my neck like that. Too much heat for me. You know........always on a personal trip to the tropics.......or hot flashes!

  5. Those colors look great! But I know how it is, sometimes you just want a certain feel. The rain sure is good for helping us get things done, depending on what that something is, of course. Thanks for stopping at Quirky Vistas. I'm not exactly sure what to do with the metal cabinets you mentioned. I really have no indoor space for them right now. Probably the garage for the time being. Any ideas? Will you ever use yours?

    1. Thanks Liz. No plans for the metal cabinets?! I thought you would have a ton of ideas. I am thinking to use them outside somehow....unfortunately I am at my Mother's for most of the summer due to a family emergency and cannot do anything with them at all since I am not at home. *sigh* but I was hoping you would have some great ideas! LOL Now I have to put my thinking cap on!
