I've Been Busy!!

Good Morning All,
Well, my card making mojo may still be on an very extended Christmas break but I have not been idle.  All this rotten snow that we have been having prompted me to get out my knitting needles and knit up some warm items for when I am walking the dog.  It's been years since I have knitted anything to wear and I have really enjoyed it :0)

I started with a simple straight cowl . The yarn used is Aran so it knitted up really quickly. This is mine and the one below is taken from the actual pattern to show you what it looks like on.

Having had such fun making this one, I decided to get a bit more adventurous and made this Cowboy Cowl. Again knitted in Aran and again, great fun.

This is mine......

and this is taken from the pattern.  I hope you like.

Thanks so much for looking. I am really hoping my card making mojo returns soon so that I shall have something else to show you.
Denise xx

They are absolutely gorgeous Denise and I so want to make one now :-)! I think the cowl would be something I would wear, will have to see if I can find a pattern.

Thanks for your lovely comment earlier, I really appreciated it. Belated happy new year sweetie. Hugs, Chris x
