The handknit Christmas gift were a hit! BOTH pairs of socks fit (miracle) and both sisters loved the cowls. When my sister opened the Tapestry Cowl, she was initially disappointed…because she didn’t think it was handknit. Which is, of course, the very BEST compliment. 🙂
During my various Christmas family gatherings I found a little time to knit and actually finished the Spiral Cowl for myself. It was a quick, easy, enjoyable knit; just what I needed after my Christmas knitting mania. It’s intentionally knit a bit on the larger side, so that it can either be worn loose or gathered and buttoned around your neck. Luckily, I had one leather button leftover from the Chevron Cowl. I used 2 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light in Oceanic Mix on size 6 needles. And I just love a picot edge.
Just a couple more pics on Flickr.
