Yet ANOTHER Christmas Cowl


This cowl is the same easy pattern from Ravelry that was originally made with leftover sock yarns. I've adapted the basic pattern for different yarn weights, but the pattern is the simple same:

6 rows purl
6 rows knit

around and around and around until you run out of yarn or it is tall enough to cover a neck in the Windy City.

This cowl was made of leftover Dream in Color from Al's leggings. It is for our vet, who is also a good friend.

I'm knitting yet another cowl in bulky green right now. I think I have a few more in me before Christmas. find I'm alternating between knitting up cowls and knitting up socks.

As for the Christmas cookies, well my snowmen came out very ..........sloppy. I used Wilson premade cookie icing....
it dries hard which is good. It tastes good, which is also good. The instructions called for microwaving the bottle of frosting and I did so according to directions. The icing was as liquid as water.....
after an hour or so it firmed up. I think it is an okay product, but the microwaving directions need adjusting.

I made some lemon cookies out of a cake mix and rice krispies and they came out wonderful.

I cheated and bought Pillsbury Peppermint cookie dough.....excellent outcome.....

The all time favorite around here are BUCKEYES. When I went to college in ohio everyone made them. I found a wonderful recipe and they came out amazing....
Fireman already confessed that he broke into the freezer bag of them this morning and snuck one.....
(He looks alot like Santa sometimes though...so I guess it is ok)

Nice cowl! I've been knitting on wips trying to make them fo, lol.
My husband loves buckeyes! (and yes, he's from Ohio) I usually don't make them though, his mother does.

I've seen that Pillsbury cookie dough and forced myself not to buy it because I will eat the cookies. I must not eat Christmas cookies!! That has become my seasonal mantra.

I love the cowl and especially the color. You are a rocking Christmas knitter!!
