FO’s: Cowl-centric

Because the cardigan is laceweight and requires my ability to focus, I’ve been throwing some easier projects in the mix for purse-knitting and social knitting.

These two cowls are examples of those projects.

Both are made from yarns that have been in my stash for years, one of kind handspun skeins made by KittyGrrlz and LMS Studio Arts. As with most handspun yarns, I wanted to show off the yarn’s natural beauty.

I like the way each cowl turned out, they’re very different and super cool!

Both cowls are now available in my Etsy shop.

What have you knit up lately?  Do you knit with novelty yarn very often?

WIP: What Doesn’t This Hat Have?

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday!  I’ve been knitting like a fiend every chance I get to try to crank out orders and work on Christmas knitting and knit a bit more stock for my upcoming show, it’s crazy!

Today I’m sharing with you a hat that was ordered by a friend of mine.  He wanted it to be slouchy, with a pompom, colorful, unique and have earflaps.  What else could you put on a hat?

Definitely a One-Of-A-Kind

I finished up the knitting portion of the hat on Monday evening but as it is not 100% complete I thought it fair to share with you what I have 🙂
