The snow is coming down in tiny, little flakes and covering everything. At least, the below zero temperatures and winds are gone for now. I have to say, once the snow falls and leaves a blanket of white, it does make everything look a lot better than the dark colors of old worn-out snow that has been plowed and salted and mixed in with dirt. (I know you would agree!)
It’s a good time to show you the cowl neck that I made for daughter. It’s called a Swans Island Olivia Cowl. The pattern is a take-off from the Basket weave pattern. I know it will keep the wind and cold away from her!
I liked the concept of a cowl neck so much that I decided to make another using Noro yarn in the color called Obi. This yarn is from Japan and is just beautiful and colorful. It is made of 55% wool, 35% silk, and 10% mohair. The color variations include deep colors of turquoise, burnt orange, black and some purple. I am knitting it on straight needles and will be using the Garter stitch.
I think this is going to look really nice!
