Well, that settles it. In a random moment of interest, one of my kids asked me what I was knitting. When I answered, “a neckwarmer”. She countered with, “another one?”.
Considering that they don’t pay too much attention to what I’m making, the fact that she noticed I was making another neckwarmer means two things. 1. that I’ve actually knit something in a style they like, and/or 2. I’ve knit so many that it’s caused it to register in their brains!
I can’t help it, I really like all the new cowl patterns out there. They are great for instant gratification and relatively mindless knitting. Also, I enjoy wearing them. They are not the same commitment as a scarf. (I realize that may sound weird). It’s also a great way to make use of the single skeins I buy because “I must have them” in the moment.
This winter’s parade of neckwarmers:
Ok, so maybe when I list them all in succession, it is a lot. But then a customer came into Knitting Central wearing this Chickadee Cowl by Kirsten Kapur and she knit it in Misti Alpaca Hand Painted Chunky. Danni and I both have that yarn in our stash, and it was really cute.
Also, on Ravelry, Julianne Smith designed the Burberry Inspired Cowl Neck Scarf. I’ve admired that since I saw it in Instyle magazine.
So maybe I’ll knit a few more.
Okay, I'm finally coming out of the voyeuristic shadow. I'm here to gush. All your cowls came out beautifully! I most like that you have versions for different moods. Also, that gorgeous red lace Collezione number is mahvelous. Hope you had a holiday night on the town in it. 🙂 best, Suzanna
