This pattern appealed to me because it's adjustable. I added the felt flower and a little charm that I found at Rainy Day Knits in Gig Harbor. The yarn is Cascade Sunseeker and has a bit of sparkle that doesn't show up in the photo.
I first saw this cowl pattern on Dee's blog and finally tried it. For some reason I found it a bit challenging but would make it again in a heart beat!
For some reason it looks blue but is really a silvery gray in Knit Pick's Galileo. I had quite a bit of yarn left, but used more than one skein.
After the gray days of winter, our yard is full of color. (Notice that the leaves have been raked up!)
Here's a close up of the Mollis azalea. Unlike the red azalea above, it loses its leaves in the fall.
Out back, the trillium has turned pink and is about done for this spring, but the golden chain tree will soon be in its glory. Stay tuned.
And in our living room, the hibiscus surprised us! As soon as it's done blossoming, it will be sent outside for its annual summer vacation. Have a wonderful weekend! Check out Patchwork Times for some more knitting inspiration.
