"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

Some knitting to share!
First off, a cowl that I made for DH. He tried one of mine when he was out snowblowing, and declared his desire for his own. So, after searching for Malabrigo Worsted in an acceptable colorway, I managed to knock this out in a couple of days.
I have modified the original pattern quite a bit, making the back more shallow, and the front a little better coverage. Detailed mods are on my Ravelry project page, if anyone is interested. DH has worn it (inside and out) nearly nonstop since I finished it. Actually, it has NOT been blocked yet - and probably won't be till it needs washed. At least I know he likes it! Not all bad.
And the other finished project is the Advent Scarf.
Totally in love with this! It was such a fun way to countdown till Christmas. I kept on schedule, starting on December 1st and finishing up on the 24th. I hope a similar KAL is offered next year. Sign me up!
Finished size is 11 inches by exactly 7 feet. It's perfect for how I like to wear scarfs. It's soft and drape-able too. Each pattern was fun, and over way before you had a chance of getting bored. I really looked forward to each days pattern piece. Great fun!
Happily married for 42 years, mother of two adult children, owned by one 4.2LB Chihuahua, retired from the crazy work world, and totally in love with my first grandson, BG! Oh - and I knit (and spin) - whenever I have a spare moment. Guess that about sums it up!
