I told you this week was all about the smaller projects I’ve been able to complete in between working on my holiday sweater knitting (which I finished last night and absolutely LOVE).
I wanted a nice warm and cozy scarf to add to my winter wardrobe and I had the Entwine scarf from the Within Knits book but I really don’t like fringe or long scarves so I decided to take the same stitch pattern and turn it into the Entwine Cowl instead. I picked up some lovely Madelinetosh ASAP in the same color as the hat I made for my friend Salina in September. It looks completely different on super bulky yarn but is still a beautiful colorway. I thought it would be a nice contrast against my Green Monster hat and I have enough left over that I want to whip up a quick cowl for Salina to match her hat.
I made this cowl super long so I can actually wrap it around myself three times for a nice warm and cozy piece around my neck when the wind is whipping.
So now that I’ve finished my Mom’s sweater for Christmas I’ve still got other sweaters I want to work on next. My goal is to whip up a NY Giants colored sweater for my husband before the big game on New Year’s Day – keep your fingers crossed for me. If I start it today I should have enough time to get it going since I’ll have a few days off for the holiday. And speaking of the holiday, all next week I’m sharing my favorite projects of the year so there will still be stuff for you to read when you’re a bit bored. So what holiday knitting have you finished?! Share!
