Yarn along: even more cowls
I've finally finished all my Christmas crochet projects, and it's time for one for me. I've been wearing the not-good-enough-for-a-gift cardiff cowl a lot, and have been wanting to make myself some more scarves for wearing all day as part of an outfit (not just for outdoors). I'd made my wool-sensitive sister a cotton-and-cashmere version, and loved it so much, I decided to make myself the same one. (And Lucy's requested a smaller matching one for herself.)
After the first version of this cowl, I learned to do a foundation single crochet, which made subsequent ones so much nicer (I love the helpful comments on ravelry for tips like that). I'm terribly slow at it and not very tidy yet, but I'm getting there. Meanwhile, I'm still reading Astrid and Veronika, which is turning out to be just the right pace for Christmas vacation.
Now that I can reveal the past month's work, here's one of the finished cowls, made as a gift for a friend:
And, if you're interested in that kind of thing, here's the ravelry link for the replacement red one I made for my sister.
I'm joining in to Ginny's Yarn Along. There's lots more yarn-and-book inspiration there!
