Wow! Almost 2 weeks into 2014 already.
I resolved to do more knitting this year and I think I have started well.
I have been knitting cowls. Why? Well I am organising a coach trip to Wonderwool Wales in April and I thought it would be nice to design something to help occupy the time during the 3 hour journey. For some reason I decided on a cowl, but it has to be something that you can knit without having to refer to the pattern too much (not recommended whilst the coach is in motion, it could induce travel sickness in some, me included!).
It took me 3 attempts before I came up with a design I thought would suit. The first 2 cowls were lovely but just did not fit the ‘coach’ criteria. The third is perfect but I need to test it further. So I have knitted 3 cowls already and I am halfway into my fourth.
These are the two I ‘rejected’:
They may be rejects for the coach but I love them, and I have published them. You can find them on Ravelry.
I have also spent a bit of my time teaching myself to spin yarn…….but it will be quite a while before I share my spinning adventures!
Happy knitting xx
