KNITTING A COWL
November 26, 2012 by Teje
Hi everyone! New week again – I hope great one! At least no storm or thunder and even sunshine … to wash laundry. I am knitting a cowl and I think I shall name it Cloudy Cowl because it’s bluffy and soft like beautiful clouds. But the colour is exactly the turquoise from the sea …
When visiting Finland in spring, I still found lots of yarn – from me, my sister and my mom. Only few came with me but more came with friends at the end of the summer. I had in my mind to make a crochet cowl because Avis is making a beautiful stripe blanket. But I wasn’t happy with my yarns and colours (those which were suitable for crochet). Then I saw these yarn balls and knew that they will be my new cowl. I was hoping to get two cowls, one turquoise and one light pink.
There was only one ball in both colours. I couldn’t know how far they will take me, so I just began and thought we’ll see … of course one wasn’t enough. Usually I like to match and mix colours but this time I took brave dicision and just continued with the second colour. This was also the easiest and quickest way to make the cowl. If I had started to make a plan how to mix the colours, it would have taken much time. Now in few late evenings I have knitted more than half. I am planning to write a simple tutorial at the end of the week. This is easy and quick way to make a lovely cowl and there is still time to knit it for a Christmas present!

One day after the storm the scene over Chania was this! Like a spaceship was going to land! It looked really amazing, so strong light through the dark clouds!
Lots of rain and still warm temperature helped my poor rosies and now they are flowering.
It’s orange time! Who could believe that in one month we have Christmas and the magic Christmas Eve has already passed! Clups – I should be with my sewing machine …
