This is my FIT TO BE TIED cowl.
I altered the pattern a bit. Of course I did.....
I knit a regular 2 by 2 rib and then joined the two ends by crocheting.
The long tie was the hardest part.
Going round and round on 12 tiny stitches for many inches was kind of kooky, but I did it. I do like how the tie looks. You knit a long thin tube and then close each end. Tie it round the seam and voila!
This pattern is in the COWLGIRL book.It is already gifted or I would take more shots for you.
I used Flicker by Berrocco and it is soft and will look great on my friend Mary's neck.
Miss Pie is very happy to be out in 40 degree weather on the porch.
I watched an interview with Cesear Milan yesterday.
He was asked about animal grief and he said this:
if the animals were bonded they will grieve but if they just shared a space they won't. I don't think Pie is grieving at all.
Tank and Bea were out of sorts but it my have been from all our crying.
We are adjusting to the new normal.
All of your kind comments were so comforting. Thank you thank you so very much.
I've started this shawl. Hold me to it.
I can do this. I am working on the first piece, the inner square today.
Thought for today:
I wish I owned a car wash.
Every car in town is getting a bath this warm 50 degree week in Chicago!
