Yesterday morning I was looking around my craft room looking for something I could do a post about (and wear to keep me warm) and my hands landed on two cowls that I created over the summer. Cowls and scarves are becoming two of my favorite accessories.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Off White and Charcoal
Inspired by: Stitch Pattern in Alice Starmore’s Charts for Color Knitting
Despite the pattern lines, this one gave me little grief, although I do wish the bottom and top edges were a little tighter.
Acrylic yarn usually isn’t very warm, but the stranding on the inside makes it quite comfy.
So I used something from my library and stash, but I can’t really count it for the 2013 challenge, because I made it in the Summer of 2012.
Yeah…and about that library. I’ve had the sudden urge to catalog the whole thing. An ugly task, I know, but sometimes I really need to know what resources I have. I’ve used Ravelry to keep track of knitting and crochet resources, but that doesn’t include all the other crafty books, magazines, and patterns. Thankfully I can use s.pringpad’s barcode scanner to make easy work of most of it. I would rather spend more time creating than organizing.
