my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

Knitting Finishes!

I have been in a scarf/cowl knitting frenzy for a couple months, mostly because there is such luscious yarn to work with!  I have mentioned my “Dark Side of the Moon” scarf, from the rainbow colorway by Must Stash Yarns: image  I used a simple pattern to knit a garter stitch scarf which lets the yarn shine.

Next was the Bar Hopping Cowl in a limited edition Lorna’s Laces colorway inspired by Frozen.

The most recent finish was a moebius cowl using a pattern by Cat Bordhi.  This was a gift for a fellow math teacher.  I used Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, which is deliciously soft.  With 47″ needles, the circumference of the cowl is only about 15″.

I do have another shawl on the needles.  My daughter’s group was invited to take their skating show to a nearby town for a performance on New Year’s Eve, and that means rehearsals every day between now and then.  Prime knitting time for mom!  I grabbed a skein of multi-colored sock yarn which is turning into a pretty hideous shawl.  A reminder for the new year: Life is too short to knit with ugly yarn!
