I'm finally getting my feet under me again after all the holiday festivities. There were many quick, small knits finished for gifts before Christmas and during the holiday season. Time to share.
Cowls. Easy and quick. Round and round and round. The pink is Bernat Ruffelina, the red and white is an old stash yarn - no label but some sort of chenille, and the brown is Paula Lishman's beaver yarn.
The beaver cowl is special. Very special yarn. It was originally knit into a hat for my father, but I frogged it - sadly and with tears, but it was time. It's now a very special cowl for me. So soft and so warm.
I am a fan of the Outlander books and television series and there has been much discussion online among knitters about the costumes. Claire's fur cowl was my inspiration and impetus for finally changing the hat into a cowl.
Wine glass cozies. Many, many wine glass cozies.
A quick and fun knit and a great conversation piece. The surprise is that they are actually very practical and usable. We had lots of practice using them over the holidays!! They are knit with Rowan Pure Wool DK and finished with a variety of vintage buttons from my enormous button collection.
