I only started sewing about five years ago but before that I used to knit. When I say knit, I don’t mean fancy sweaters or anything. Mostly scarves and a couple of hats. I think I even have a blanket 3/4 of the way done in my stash somewhere. Well it has been a while and I have been meaning to get back to knitting.
Shannon over at Luv in the Mommyhood gave me the perfect opportunity. This month, she is hosting a cowl knit along. (See that cute little button in my right side bar? Just click on it for the details.) Here is the cowl that I made. I was able to sport it this past weekend while my kiddos played in the snow! Hello, it’s only October people!
Anyway, I really love it. It is the Breckenridge Cowl if any of you want to give it a try. The pattern is on Ravelry which I only just discovered last year. They have about a bazillion knitting and crochet patterns and many of them are free!
See all of the lovely cables? This was my first time attempting cables. I am so proud of myself.
As I mentioned before, it has been a while since I have knit and I even needed a refresher on how to do a knit stitch vs. a purl stitch. Fortunately, there are several sites with how to videos. The two that I found the most helpful are Knit Witch and Knitting Help . Go check them out.
Guess what, I even whipped up a second one! Hmmmm….. whom to give it to?
Happy Knitting and thanks Shannon for hosting the knit along!
