Dear Faithful Readers,
My Magic Cake Cowl is finished. I cast off late last night. I never thought I would succumb to the mini skien movement, but my immunity wore off. This is my second knit with mini skeins and I love both of them. I loved this pattern. I like it modeled on Tank , but you can see it better modeled by the stone fireplace . Of course, I haven’t blocked it yet. Odds are, I won’t block it until I wash it for the first time. C’mon , it is sleeting out. I have to wear this baby! I cannot stand when the cold wind blows and its creepy fingers sneak into my neck. This is a HA HA Chicago Lake Winds Knit. This is a go ahead, walk to work knit. This is a shoveling, bird watching, and snow shoe and work at the barn cowl.
Because I know I can dress you, you are my model. We missed national dress up your cat day recently, so there you go.
Finally, I was able to get a unblocked but decent photo of the cowl. Great pattern. I used 7 or so mini skeins along the way.
You are darn lucky that I am participating in Cornell’s bird count this year. You must have known , duh, that I need practice. If you go to their website, which I am sure you do not, you will see that the process is a bit bigger than just saying: I have a cardinal and a junco and a hawk somedays . So I practiced with you. One. One. One damn turkey that won’t leave the road despite my honking horn. I had to wait for oncoming traffic to go by so I could go around you. You have your nerve. I was already crunched for time. Again, you are welcome and you are lucky it was me.
