I finished my first knitting project of the season – a Marian Cowl! I’m so happy it’s finished and not sitting in a yarn lump on one of my shelves.
Have you been knitting anything fun lately? I’d love to hear what you’re up to. Or maybe I should check out what’s going on Ravelry (find me @noodleheadsews)? I keep forgetting to do that.
This cowl was started sometime at the beginning of last year and I abandoned the project because I couldn’t figure out how to do the first twist part. I started again this year (thinking that I had a little more experience under my belt) and it happened again – couldn’t get the twist to happen. Well, third time was a charm and it worked awesome. Of course it doesn’t take much time at all to knit up using the extra bulky yarn, so I’m happy to have this one done!
It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but in my usual form, it’ll probably be gifted as soon as I see it’s recipient again. I just can’t wait that long! Plus it’s already freezing cold here, and dang, this one sure keeps a neck cozy.
