Finished Cowl

I finished my cowl for the Carefree Cowl Knit Along over at luvinthemommyhood.
Just in time too because we got snow this weekend!  Snow in October is very unusual so I was very happy to have my cowl to keep me warm!

Thanks to my Hubby for taking these pics and putting up with me giving very specific (annoying) instructions.

I made the Gap-tastic cowl.  I loved knitting this.  In fact I just started another one.  The length of this one is a little short on me and guess what... I am not in love with the purple on me.  So the one I just started is 30 stitches longer and will be a little thinner and very dark grey.  I think that is going to work better for me.  I had a hard time wrangling all my hair when wrapping the cowl, especially while it was snowing.

My local library has a knitting group that meets once a month and I started going last year.  I didn't go all summer, it's too hot to knit, so I just started up again this week.  I love going because I am the youngest by at least 30 years :) And these women have been doing it so long, I just love seeing what they make.  This week there were 3 sweaters, 2 blankets, 2 pair of socks and mittens going in the circle.  Only one of the ladies knew what a cowl was.  But they all agreed that a Knit Along online was really cool :) Thanks Shannon!!
