I'm Alive and I Have an FO!

Went on a bit of a blogging/knitting hiatus - but I am back!  Caught one of the bugs that is going around and, after three weeks, I'm feeling almost normal.  Between being sick and being busy with work and other commitments, I wasn't finding the time to knit, which left me nothing to blog about!

I do, however, have an FO that I finished just before I got sick...and I love it!  It's the cowl for my 'mother-in-law', I don't want to give it away!

Sorry for the really bad cell phone pictures, would love to have some pics taken with my camera in natural light...if I was ever out of the office when it was light out!   Gotta love commuting both ways in the dark at this time of year!

You can find more information about this project and yarn in my last blog post.

I am happy to say that I have picked up my needles again and hope to make some good progress on some more Christmas projects.

On a side note, I went to the Circle Craft Fair yesterday (always amazing and inspiring).  If you live in Vancouver you must go!  Be sure to stop by the Sweet Truth's booth - amaaazing butter toffees.  My coworkers and I polished off a tin of the Sweet Lemon Butter Toffee (topped with 'creamy Swiss white chocolate).  Sooo good I almost regretted sharing!...but where is the Christmas spirit in that?


  1. Welcome back and glad to hear you're feeling better! I was wondering where you disappeared to! That's a very lovely cowl! I have been wanting to make one for myself. I totally get the whole "I don't want to give it up" thing. I have that with almost every one of my projects.

  2. Glad you are feeling better. Wasn't this your first cabled project? It came out so beautifully! I can see why you wouldn't want to give it away. I'm off to favorite the pattern. : )

  3. Glad you are feeling better. The Burberry inspired cowl is soooo great. I love mine and my sis loves the one I made for her (as does her husband who keeps stealing it prompting me to make a "manly" cowl just for him)

  4. It looks super snuggly! Glad you're feeling better. And those butter toffees sound delicious!

  5. Thanks for the comments, everyone!

    Affiknitty - yes, this was my first cabled project! Definitely not my last though! I love the look of cables!
