Summer knitting

It has been cool here over the last few days--in the 70s and low 80s--so cool for Colorado, that when my local knitting shop advertised a free cowl class, more than 15 people showed up. With a social stitching night going on at the same time, there were at least 30 people crammed into the shop on a summer's night, all knitting away.


Between my birthday and several days of food poisoning, I haven't got much stitching done this month, so I thought the class would be a great way to get my creative juices flowing. It was! I stayed up late Friday and finished my cowl.


Here it is.


And here it is on!


I hope to make a few for gifts this year, so it was good practice for me. By stitching with the group, I got to see how different yarns worked up, how much yarn the project takes, and what the final product looked like. If you want to knit your own and are a Ravelry member, you can download the pattern for free.


Happy stitching!



  1. That's a surprise, from the top picture I thought it was something like a wrist-warmer, and then I scrolled down and it was BIG! It looks cosy - I am sure you'll have some delighted recipients if you make them as presents.

    1. It is not quite as big as the pattern picture. I will need to get some more yarn and add a few stitches next time. It is cozy though!

  2. this will be really warm and cosy weather come the winter months
