Over the past couple of weeks my knitting needles have been busy creating these two cowls made from mohair I had in my stash for far too long. All that knitting though - and I only decreased the stash by one single solitary ball!!!!
The patterns are pretty generic - the beige one is simply 5 rows knit and 5 rows purl, rinse and repeat. The ivory version was a little more complicated and was a pattern from one of my stitch books. Unfortunately the design is pretty much lost in the fuzziness of the yarn so if I do more I'll probably stick to the beige version.
- HERE is another fabulous idea to use buttons! I wouldn't use real greenery though - it would be better with artificial so it could be used more than once.
- Karen Ruane has announced her latest online course called 'The Little Book of Sewing' and, as always, it sounds very intriguing. Go HERE for further information!
- There is a new free knitting pattern available HERE every day this month.
- Pattern HERE for a really cute Christmas stocking!
