Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Bring On The Cold


I’m talking big since it’s 40 degrees here in balmy Minnesota.  It sure beats the -40 degrees a few weeks ago!

I have a new cowl for the next cold snap.  And, yes, there will be more cold.  It’s Minnesota.

Are you wondering how I can take a snow photo when it’s 40 degrees?  I was playing with some of the fun edit features in flickr.  The snow is fake.  Fun, huh?

I added a crocheted loop and a button, just to give it a little shape.  I’m happy.

The pattern:  Spiral Cowl (Rav. link)

The yarn:  Handmaiden Casbah

Color:  Renaissance

Oh, and under my coat and cowl, I’m still wearing my pajamas.  Again.  I was going to be half finished with digging out my sewing room by the time I had to run kids for after school stuff.  Crud!

Have a great weekend.  Oh, and if you’re looking for me tomorrow night, I’ll be watching NASCAR!

  1. That’s gorgeous!

    Everyone needs a cowl to go with PJs!

  2. maria-
    i am so excited for nascar to start back up too! go carl!
    love the cowl. i have 3 skeins of that casbah yarn–it is scrumptious!

  3. I just told my husband ‘I’m having a ‘insert your name here in vase you don ‘t use it publicly’ Day’. I didn’t get in the shower (and out of jammies) until I showered and put clean pj’s on! I like the way you put the button on that cowl…I like them loose, but it would be nice at times to snug them up. Great idea!!

  4. I really like the loop & button – nice addition to a great little knit! :o)

  5. That cowl looks just smashing on you!! And Casbah…yummmy!! Love the snow feature too! Stay warm!

  6. The cowl looks fantastic! The loop and button is a great idea!

  7. I have some handspun that might be a perfect fit for that cowl pattern. Thanks.

  8. I am laughing at the fact that you had to fake snow!!!! We moved from Wisconsin a year ago so I get the whole snow till May. I found a sure way to change the weather is finish a project you adore. Great cowl!
