The Absolutely Mindless Use Up Your Stash Feel Good SImple Cowl



I'd love to say it was all my idea, but it wasn't. I saw an image of a skinny scarf-cowl made up of leftover yarns and it pointed a knitting finger right at me.

I have lots of shades of blue sock yarn leftovers. I cast on 48 stitches and picked up some yarn and started. I did a provisional cast on. I have to have live cast on stitches to kitchner together when I am finished knitting.

I have knit about 23 inches so far and it has been completely and totally mindless. While some would go absolutely nutty with such simplicity, my mind likes it some days.

On another note, a nurse I work with was using another hand lotion that is new to me: Smitten's Lush. She wanted me to try it. It was nice. It was alright. It works for her. It had a slight scent which was very nice.

My yarn thought for today: If you are bored with January, join a yarn swap. At least the mail gets interesting!

I love the scarf/cowl and the bright turquoise thrown in! I think I'll try it. My favorite hand and body lotion is Origin's Ginger Cream.
