Crazy Yarns And Crazy Cowls Off The Needles

In December, I decided to finish two projects that were on the needles forever.  I made them into cowls.  I prefer cowls, at the moment.

One cowl, I started when I first started going out with John.  I spun the yarn to knit a simple garter scarf in the cinema.  John and I used to go to the cinema a lot.  I eventually just knitted socks in the cinema.  I would have a lot of socks on standby, stitches cast on and one inch of ribbing done, ready to be knitted in the dark.

So, this handspun garter stitch maybe scarf/ maybe cowl laid in a bag for ages untouched.  I finished it off and have been wearing it here and there.  I do get great use out of multiple hats, scarves/cowls and mittens because of the rain here.  Wet woolies, let's face it, are as much fun as wet towels and just as useful.

The yarn is spun from batts and is a bit crazy.  I had some leftover.  It was a bit too thin and I just wanted the cowl finished and off the needles.  I finished the cowl and Navajo plied the leftover ball. I got a mini skein.  It is kind of cute.

The photos aren't great but you get the idea.

I finished the two sleeves of my cardigan.  Must figure out if I will use the steam iron that my mother gave me to finish/block my cardigan then start the button band.

Working on finishing more prints for my Society6 page.

Stay warm and knit a cowl!
