Because I made myself a Birthday Cowl. A very quick knit, and surprisingly comfortable since I usually hate anything right up by my neck.
Pattern: Birthday Cowl by Nova Seals[Ravelry Link]
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Tuareg
Needles: US 8 (5.00mm)
I took the picture wearing my favorite coat...because I could.
I also finished this pair of socks last week:
Pattern: Universal Toe-Up Sock Pattern by Amy Swenson [Ravelry Link]
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Sock
Needles: US 3 (3.25mm)
Notes: Worked over 52 stitches
I have been reading all week for my thesis preparation, so I haven't had too much of a "break." Unfortunately, I am nowhere close to completing the amount of reading that I need to. Of course, knitting instead of reading doesn't really help that. But if you had to choose between reading about the Edwardian staging of Henry VI and knitting, which would YOU choose?
