I would like to thank my enabler, with photos

Darkside cowl Darkside Cowl by Saray Fama
Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Grey Heather, size 7 needle.

This is my first cowl. I'm in love. It's soft, warm, pretty, and soft. And warm. I see many cowls in my future.

My enabler?
Penny the Penguin Girl. She's made many, many beautiful cowls. Where she leads, I shall follow.


a lamy, a mousepad, and a new teabird family crestPenny and Kata conspired to make me happy last month by sending me a box of lovelies including a new raspberry Lamy Al-star fountain pen, with turquoise cartridges, tea, and ...

thank you, kata! my new family crest! ... Teabird's family crest, which Kata carved for me.




And this? Oh, just because.

no excuse. sorry.

Nice cowl - I've decided to make them for gifts to my nieces next Christmas. (Hopefully they will still be "in," as they are all rather fashion-involved ...)

And wow what a package! I LOVE the crest - I think we all need one, to tell you the truth.

I haven't made the leap to cowls, yet. I wasn't going to make a shawl either but now I have 2 and am working on number 3 and 4 & 5 are planned.....a cowl just might be in my future.

I've been obsessed with the idea of cowls for awhile - just need to find time. Yours is beautiful! As are all of the other photos.
