All Bundled Up In My Cowl.
Monday, January 3, 2011
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years! For many of us, including myself, it's back to reality which means no more sleeping in and back to work. Did I hear a "boo?" Yes, I thought so.
Anyways, ever since I saw a beautiful cowl on Sydney from The Daybook I knew I had to have my own. I was going to buy one but then I thought to myself "hmmm, I could probably do this myself!" So guess what? I did! While it was a bit of a challenge, it was nonetheless a success (in my mind at least). While it is a bit too heavy for Florida weather, it is perfect for a cold winter up north. I wore it in New York this past week and it kept me so nice and warm! I self-taught myself how to do the basic knit stitch from a series of YouTube videos. The hardest part was starting off since it felt a bit awkward holding the needles in my hands. In no time, I was knitting away and getting faster by the minute. This is my first knitted item and I cannot wait to learn more complicated stitches. Kelly got started on her first cowl too!
