Weekend Cowls

This weekend was kind to me, giving me lots of knitting time. The girl and I watched movies Friday night and I got most of a cowl done that night. (We watched The Greatest Showman and Lady Bird, and both were just Eh for me.)

The second one was a Sunday project, mostly done while watching Everest (really good!) and the last half of Toy Story 3. I had to do this one in daylight because OMG black yarn.

Obviously it’s still drying and I wasn’t patient enough to wait for it to dry before taking photos. The yarn for both is Cascade Baby Alpaca and the pattern is Flor de Maio. I didn’t do as many pattern repeats as the pattern called for, but I think they’re still a good wearable size. Hope the recipients like them!

And now that those are done, I am free to play with the yarn that came in the mail today!

    • Haha! That’s like asking me which child is my favorite! I love all my cowls, but the super bulky ones are the warmest for sure. However, I’m lucky that I don’t have to do dog walks–we have a really big yard so they get their exercise that way. And I’ve never had to let a dog out at 1 am–just one reason I don’t need a puppy! LOL

  1. I love the stitch in those cowls!

    Aw I loved Lady Bird, but I was also right around the age of the protagonist in the movie (maybe a year older) during 2002/2003. So that entire movie was a nostalgia train for me 🙂

    • I love Saoirse Ronan and thought she was marvelous, but the mother drove me nuts, and there were parts that were just kind of…strange. Glad I finally watched it though, after all the hype!
