Finished Cowl

This cowl was a lot of fun to knit and went very quickly. I had no problem grafting the two ends together and I really, really need to put it in to soak with the other scarf and both hats that I’ve finished recently.

I’ve already cast on for another cowl, 90 sts, fingering yarn, 16″ size 4 needle and my last set of mini skeins all wound and ready for knitting. I had a two hour nap this afternoon so I’m not quite ready for bed at 10:30 pm so I’ll knit and listen to Sirius radio, “70’s on 7”. Hard not to tap your toes when Ringo Starr sings “Oh My My” or the “No No” song…yeah, I’m easily entertained…I know this. Oh, boy…here comes “Disco Inferno” by the Trammps. Needless to say the headache is history! The spinal adjustment helped a lot this morning.

I checked out Jo Dee’s website to see if she had more mini skeins in the shop and found a set I don’t have. I ordered this one. More Autumn colors which I love.

Have a blessed night ya’ll. I’m going to knit for awhile and then call it a day. Catch you tomorrow.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
