wheel stitch cowl
October 31st, 2011
Sorry I disappeared from the internet last week: school holiday, crazy children, broken camera, blah, blah, blah. The camera will be in the shop for a good two weeks, so you are stuck with my dressed-up-to-look-like-a-polaroid camera phone shots for a while. That's me up there, trying to look all stylish in my cozy new cowl.
It has been a loooong while since I picked up a crochet hook--10 months to be exact. Needless to say I was rusty. There was a lot of ripping out at first, but then the crochet neurons began firing again and it was smooth sailing the rest of the way. The cowl pattern is the chunky circle scarf from people webs. Not only is the pattern free, but Lindsi talks you through every bit--lots of people had questions about different steps and she answered them all in the comments section. How awesome is that?
Now I'm dreaming of my next crochet project. I think Cal's new shawl pattern is definitely on the list. Or I might try my hand at some amigurumi, but I can't decide elephant or bear/mouse? Or something totally different. What do you think?
