Crafting On :: Neck Things

What else to call them?  It's my new thing, these neck things.  I started my handwork many years ago with scarves, but they use far too much yarn for the results they give.  I like to think I'm pretty good at doing more with less. ;-)

Here's the Pedestrian Cowl, with a few small modifications, using yarn from blakdove. I've started putting projects on Ravelry, after many years of resistance, and you can find me here.

This is so cozy to wear.  We had a lovely foggy frost yesterday and it was just perfect with my boiled wool jacket.  We spent most of the morning outside, so it was a help.

And here's a restart on the Easy Peasy Shawl with yarn Mike's family gave me from a trip to the UK.  This yarn has a pretty gradient to it, so I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.  I started with bigger needles, but switched to size three.  It's fun to knit something that spirals!

Easy Peasy Shawl

Today is sixty-eight and windy! I've had enough of this, but the weather is great for hanging out lots of laundry and getting the children plenty of fresh air. Two nappers this afternoon, so I am looking at the bright side. Rain's coming in soon and I've got more to fold.

What a lovely cowl and such a vibrant colour too and it looks like your shawl is going the same way. Something to cheer up those winter days. Lovely! Best Wishes Anna (amothershares.wordpress.com)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
