A cowl with a view.

I finished my cowl!


This has been such a relaxing project - portable and good for movie knitting (we are Movie Watchers in this house, so good movie knitting is important to me). The madelinetosh tosh merino light is such a lovely yarn, and any time I get the chance to use some of my button stash, I'm happy. These are some fun vintage Bakelite ball buttons, my favorite - they remind me of my great-grandmother, Rhea, who sewed impeccably and had fabulous taste in buttons. 


Jacob and I drove down the road to a local canyon to take pictures of the FO, and I got to enjoy one of my favorite vistas in Albuquerque, just as the sun was starting to set.


I mean, come on. I love this city.


The pattern is with Katherine for tech editing, and I hope to release it soon! It's a simple, meditative knit with some design details that make me happy: selvedge stitches, pretty buttons, and a few different styling options - long infinity loop, a shorter standard cowl, or unbuttoned as a scarf. 

Next up, finishing the mitts for Jacob. I'm very close! With a little WIP mental energy freeing up, I find myself looking for my next projects at a pretty frenetic pace. Never mind that I have other lingering WIPs, plus, I'm working on a couple crafty projects for my brother's wedding, so I am excited to get going on those, too - he's getting married in April! (Yay!!) Good thing I have a nice mountain view to breathe into sometimes. Helps keep me calm.
