A cowl for myself

I’ve never completed anything for myself. I wanted to make a hat but I didn’t like the pattern and the scarf I started ages ago seemed rather childlike to me. I’m not fussy, I just don’t know what I LIKE ! Is that weird?

I love this though. It’s such a beautiful Cowl and I cannot wait until it’s completed.

I am using one of my gorgeous burnt orange skeins from a secret dyer 😛 I promised not to “out” her for doing the customs for me.

The photo does not truly represent the colour, it’s such a delightful burnt orange, think of Autumn leaves. I adore it so much.

I’m finding out the favourite colours of my sister in laws, mother in law and grandmother in law to knit them one each. Winter is coming in Morocco now and it should arrive to them just as the cold starts. I hope they love it as much as I do.

My progress. 3/4 of the way through

Taken at night so is quite dark sorry.

Mahunga !!

I wanted a cute little hat to match the little Milo Vest I made recently and so I thought a Mahunga was in order. This hat is such a quick hat to make and always looks so lovely. This is made in the gorgeous Olive/Pine green DK yarn from Ewe Give Me the Knits.

I made it in the size larger than he should wear because he HATES hats on his head and this is the only way he will wear one.

Mahunga Baby !!
