Lately I have been knitting and I hereby present you with a child like enthusiasm (look what I made!) my new wrist warmers and my new cowl:


Here you can find the pattern for the wrist warmers and here for the cowl (on the website of the honey cowl you see a picture of the longer version, I made the shorter one).

The wrist warmers are made of Lana Gorssa MEILENWEIT sock yarn. I love the colour but I'm not too crazy about the yarn itself. They where fun to make, kind of meditative since I really had to concentrate. Every time my mind started to wander I made a mistake. No watching TV while knitting these!

The cowl is made of cotton. I really like the texture of the honeycomb stitch and I was able to work on it without too much thinking. I stopped half away and made my own version of the cowl by adding two buttons. I love the combination of yellow and turquoise, a new discovery for me!

Before these master pieces there where two serious failures. The pink cowl was my first attempt of making the honey cowl. Does not quite look the same, does it? I somehow misunderstood the directions and started adding stitches. When I noticed my mistake I just tried to make something of it to only discover half way that I had managed to twist the whole thing.

This poor sock will never get a pair. I really liked knitting lace but combining it with making a sock with heels and such was a bit too much for me. I decided to forget about the sock and made something else instead, hence the wrist warmers.

Bad picture of a sock gone bad...

Wow! That must have taken a lot of time! Both the wristlets and the cowl look great. I love the sunny color - maybe it will make Spring come faster. Do you know what else I love? Seeing a picture of YOU!!!
How is the quilting group coming along. If I am ever in your neck of the woods, I will stop by when you have quilt group.
It is cold on my mountain, I am praying for Spring.

The wristlets and cowl look great! I'm growing more and more fond of yellow, myself and turquoise is one of my favourite colours, so I love the combination of the two! I'm terrible at sock knitting, and until now, there are only two lonely socks without a mate in my WIP pile, so I gave up on it for now ...
