Friday evening I found myself alone in the house (which is a good thing on occasion!). I was trolling around on Ravelry and came across this big, warm, wonderful cowl pattern. Pattern called for one skein of Lion Brand Thick and Quick. I have plenty of those in stash (remember, resolution to stash knit?) PERFECT. Dug out this red, dug out size 17 needles, put some nice, mindless t.v. on and away I went.
No cleaning, though at one point I did stop to eat. Took the following picture today and see now that I need to water the plant behind me (oops!). The darn thing sits by the heat duct and needs constant watering in the winter. The pattern is free(!) here on spiderwoman knits blog. She has adorable hand crafted items in her Etsy shop. Spent quite a bit of time perusing her blog. Wonderful, interesting and fun. Three essential adjectives for a blog. You should pop over and check it out. I am wearing the cowl today. Wore it to the fancy store as I was dropping something off (clue to you, dear reader). Was sweating in the store. I took my jacket off. I continued to sweat. I took my zip up sweatshirt off. More sweating ensued. Pulled Drop Stitch Cowl off. Whew, that's better! They need to turn the heat down in that store! A girl needs to be able to wear a fine knitted accessory inside as well as outside, am I right? Within my blog post are a few clues, as to an upcoming blog post news. I dropped something off and feel a little bit blue, but it will be back in a week or two. Stay tuned.
