I finished my Honey Cowl Hat! I used the honey cowl stitch pattern and the same yarn as my honey cowl, so now I have a matched set. The skein that I used for the hat did not bleed nearly as much as the skein that I used for the cowl. As a result, the cowl is slightly less vibrant than the hat, but I am hoping that I am the only one who will notice.
Here it is before blocking and weaving in the ends.
I knit a lot of socks on very thin yarn and very thin needles. This cowl and hat set worked up in worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles seemed like such a quick knit in comparison. It was nice to change things up a bit.
I also acquired this lovely yarn bowl. It is made by a local (to me) potter and sold at my LYS. This is the first real yarn bowl I have ever owned. I am fabulous at improvising yarn bowls and other knitting notions using things within arms reach of my knitting chair :) I have already warned my husbeast that this may be the start of a collection.
I finished a sock! I have to knit 2.5 socks by the 31st and get them in the mail on the 2nd of January. Wish me luck.
I started another sock. This one seems like such a quick knit compared the the one pictured above - but I might just be telling myself that because the deadline looms and I am getting desperate.
