Casually Cowl | Celtic Cast On


Cowls have taken over the blogosphere!!!! If you haven’t already knit one I KNOW your tempted to. What could be better than a simple knit, quick project, most definately portable that could be done in a matter of hours. After seeing many many many cowls out there I finally decided to give one a go and see what all the fuss was about…… Casually Cowl was born.


                                                                          Casually Cowl

               Start Date: June 6th 2008

               Finish Date: June 6th 2008

               Yarn: Handspun gifted by my MIL

               Pattern: my own

               Needles: 5mm circs

Knit in a matter of hours, I couldn’t put this down. Round and round we go and after a few shows that were  PVR’d I have a nice new Cowl.



   This is quite a thick handspun so will be very nice in the winter and cold fall nights. I’ve even tucked it on the bike with me incase we are driving home late one evening and i’m freezing my buns off. I now see why you can’t knit just one, I’m already contemplating my second.

                                       I also received the cutest gift in the mail this week from Kristina


    Is that not the cutest little felted purse? I love the little felted ball as the zipper pull. I’m assuming she made this herself, its even lined with bright fabric too, I *heart* it! As if that wasn’t enough inside was something even cuter.

                                                      The card reads “I just had to get you these”


              Although I haven’t seen Mr. Owl since winter i’m sure he’s still hanging out on the Ridge somewhere. These little guys will remind me of him everytime I use them, which will be very often! They are too cute NOT to use. THANK YOU soooo much Kristina, you nailed the me factor once again

                                                         Lots more FO’s coming at ya!!
