I used all soft and kind-to-the skin fibers for a random cowl. It was so nice to knit, such good clicking.
I used a cowl pattern to begin but then shifted to y/o around the top and bottom with varied yarns for stripes. I had some acrylic stuff to add to some of the lighter weight yarns I chose.
My sweet mama liked it so I left it with her. It sits on the chest in a “just right comfy” sort of way and she found it warm and comforting.
I finished the rib armholes for this striped vest. It looks kinda clowny but I still like the colors.
If I lost ten pounds it might look better. Ha!
I’m just about finished with this sweater. I have a few inches of sleeve and then the i-cord trim for the neckline. I don’t know if I like how purple it is. I do keep picking purple. My Lopi cardi is coming along and it’s pink/purple. Hmmmmmm.
I found a new yarn shop. It’s all the way in Longmont but it’s sweet and very well supplied. I’ll visit again.
One of our young friends came over for dinner and he saw my Penguono on the chair. He was cold so he put it on. Funny, but it’s nice to see it on someone besides me. I haven’t worn it out of the house yet. Too chicken.
I’m going to cast on something and then maybe finish a mitten or sock. Maybe. I cleaned house today so tomorrow I can sit and knit. Bliss.
I be that Penguono looks much cuter on you! Hope you can wear it more publicly. ❤
