giveaway #41

The winner of the Dindy Beret kit grand prize is:

Kelly J. R.

The winner of the Betsy Braids kit is:

My friend of Mommieof4Munchkins!

The two runners up are:

Krystal who said, "DPNS, just because I have never tried magic loop."

&

Sabrina that wrote, "DPNs for sure! I will say that I haven't tried Magic Loop. I've had a couple people try to convince me to do it, but I like working with DPNs and really am not all that interested in Magic Loop. I hope I win!!"

My dearest knitting friends,

I'm in Mexico! So, please don't be mad if I cut this post a little short. My husband and I are here for two of our closest friends who are tying the knot on the beaches of Mexico in just a few days. I'm enjoying myself immensely, but of course I couldn't forget my faithful YOTH followers!

Even though I'm away in paradise, I still have a fun giveaway to share with you this week. About a month ago, I had the opportunity to do another sample knit for Alana of Never Not Knitting. This time I got to knit up her beautiful new pattern, Shawl Collared Cowl. This neat lil' cowl was such a quick knit and super soft and fuzzy in the Misti Alpaca Chunky yarn. I'm not sure whether this pattern is classified as unisex, but in my opinion, my brother looked just as good in this cowl as I did when we tried it on!

What do you think?



Wouldn't this cowl make the perfect gift for at least half the people on your gift list this holiday season?! It would for me! Also, it was mentioned in the NNK Rav Group recently that this cowl can also be knit in one skein of Knit Picks City Tweed HW. That makes the project even more affordable.

In exchange for the sample knit, Alana sent over enough yarn to knit up another cowl in the luxurious alpaca yarn. Guess who I pass that along to?! YOU of course! So, one follower has the opportunity to win two skeins of Misti Alpaca Chunky in a beautiful rust brown color and a pretty printed copy of the Shawl Collared Cowl pattern.

Squish-i-licious!



Also, two runners up have the opportunity to win the PDF copy of the pattern as well.

I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 1114/10. Say HI and tell us what's currently on your needles!


I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

Hi!
I technically have a bunch of projects on the needles right now, but the only one getting any love is the wedding stole I'm knitting for my sister in law. It's the "Reversible Cabled-Rib Shawl" by Lily Chin, and it is what it sounds like. The wedding's in a week and a half, so it's crunch time. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/manduh/02-reversible-cabled-rib-shawl

donna said...

Love, love, love that cowl pattern! Currently on the needles is a vanilla sock, an antidote to a gossamer weight christening shawl that I just finished for a family member.

Kayla said...

Hi! ^_^
Now I knit a shawl. I choose Filigrano pattern and island yarn Lopi in great color.

SovereignCrux said...

Hi! =)

Currently juggling a few Christmas gifts: I am in the process of knitting a big wintery cardigan for my mother, a celtic cabled scarf for my boyfriend, and some lacy scarves for my aunts. I have about a month to finish up gifts which need to be mailed out, so trying to knit like crazy. Still have some hats to do after, but the bulk of my knit/crochet gifts are done (Thankfully I had the foresight to start back in July!).

on my needles: frantic swatching so i can take a new sweater project with me on vacation to Laos in 8 days!

alcatmom said...

On my needles now are many projects! Couple of scarves, socks, etc. That is a great cowl and I'll be needing that pattern for sure. It looks great on your brother - although it's hard to pay attention to what he's wearing! Very easy on the eye, he is!! Have a great trip and thanks!!!

Robin said...

Of course there are LOTs of stuff on the needles right now, it's November after all. But last night I was knitting on the Owlings mitts. I adore them and it's been my first chance to try beading.

Andrea said...

Currently on my needles is another Baby Sophisticate jacket. I'm using Malabrigo Rios and it is turning out wonderful!

Maluaral said...

Hi! I am currently knitting the February Fitted Pullover for myself, but I was wrong in the pattern, put a more row the right *-*

Megan said...

Hi!
I have to classify my projects into two groups.

Personal~ Peasy Sweater in KP City Tweed, Lemon Curd.

Christmas~ Tiny sweater ornaments, pencils(teacher gifts) and fingerless mitts.

I think that lovely cowl would have to go in the "Personal" catagory for sure!
Thanks for another fun giveaway and have a great vacation!

Kristin said...

HI! I am finishing up Dindy Beret, and I am knitting an easy lap blanket for my daughter.

Thanks!

Frankly Beka said...

I have too many projects on my needles right now to even try to list. And if I did try I'm sure I'd forget more than a few. However my most active/current project is a light and lacy circular scarf in a double vine pattern. It's for my sister who is going to Israel for school next year. But don't tell her. It's a surprise for her trip!

Gianna said...

Currently working on a baby gift - more than half done, thank goodness!

Cindy said...

I am currently knitting a blanket and a skirt - I'm a little nervous about that one so we'll see if I actually wear it. Thanks for the giveaway!

pigbook1 said...

I just bound-off a delicious squishy colorwork scarf!

Kathleen said...

I love this pattern, so please count me in! I currently have a sweater on the needles that's begging me to finish it as well as a pair of baby miittens that I need to get going on before the babe is ready for college.

Hi, loving this blog! Right now, have a Norah Gaughan asymetrical cardigan on the needles with Manos in a wonderful pink/copper color. Also a pair of socks in shafer Anne yarn, and lots on the list. A hat for me, fetching fingerless gloves for a friend for xmas, multiple scarves, and on and on! And of course I can't forget Sock Wars coming up in January! Thanks for the giveaways!!!

Jen said...

I was just thinking the other day that I wanted to make a cowl! I just finished a hat for my son and I'm about to finish a reversible cat and mouse from Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys.

odessa said...

Hi!
I have a pair of Grove mittens on the needle right now.

Ginger said...

Cute cowl! I'm currently knitting Christmas gifts, felted slippers (French Press Slippers and Felted Clogs) until my eyes cross. I've decided that everyone on my Christmas list is getting slippers (if the boredom of repetition doesn't kill me first).

Sophia said...

I have Leisl on my needles! I want to win!!!!

Alice said...

Hello, all! On my needles--Dead Simple Lace socks in BFL and a Creideamh shawl in merino/silk lace.

Erin said...

Hi! I hope you're having a great time in Mexico! Currently on my needles: a mystery KAL hat for me, and a Snapdragon Flip-top Mitten for a teacher gift. Oh, I also have a sock OTN, but I haven't worked on it lately.

Debbie said...

I have several things on the needles right now, but the one I am trying to concentrate on is a pinwheel vest for my daughter. I'm using Noro Silk Garden Sock and it is GORGEOUS! Supposed to be a surprise for Christmas but the colors are so beautiful that I had to show her.

Love the cowl -- big fan of them in general and especially in chunky yarns!

Liz said...

Hi! On my needles (but about to come off!) is a Frosted Glow cowl by French Press Knits. I'm getting started on Christmas gifts and plan to make a few...though I would love to mix it up with a Shawl Collared cowl!

Lydia said...

Erin said...

I'm working on the lover's knot afghan (still, forever...) and a pretty thing for my sister!

Emily said...

I'm doing an improvised jacket design for NaKniSweMo 2010. I'm frogging a lot, but I think I'm getting close to the point where I can be past some details and just knit mindlessly for a while!

Jani said...

Holiday gifties on my needles . . . lots of cowls, fingerless mitts and a few owl ornaments that will hopefully be ready to roost in the Christmas tree! Thanks for the contest - love this pattern and yarn.

Cary said...

Hello YOTH!

I am currently working on a pair of fingerless gloves (Fetching) for a swap buddy and a few more Christmas gifts. This is the first year that I am so ahead I may be able to knit myself something.

Love the cowl BTW.

The Chase Family said...

I've got several projects going but the three I'm working on most are Finger Foods from Itty Bitty Toys, a bathrobe by Debbie Bliss and a Spiral Cowl. :)

asteride said...

Hi, I'm working on Knotty but nice for my husband. It will be ready in a couple of days. Then I'm planning to work on a mohair pair of fingerless mittens.
Always love your yarn but I'm actually now in love with Malabrigo silky merino london sky, searching for a pattern that would look good....

Cashmere lace shawl. Gorgeous, but taking entirely too long.

Hi! Right now I have a pair of socks and a jacket (that looks like it might spend it's life there) on needles.

Rachel D. said...

Currently I'm working on a couple different pairs of fingerless gloves and some cotton dishcloths.

I've been eyeing Alana's new pattern for awhile now and it would be amazing to win it (and some squishy yarn!).
Thanks.

Megan said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I am currently slogging through a sock weight cardigan "Olive".

HI!
I have a bunch of projects on the needles right now, but my focus is on a herringbone scarf that I promised my dad two Christmases ago and am only getting to now (sorry, Daddy)!

Kristy said...

Hi! Still plowing my way through holiday gift knitting. Lots of hats, scarves, and socks!

Currently on my needles is the Brambles Beret from the most recent Knitty, which pretty much everyone in the world seems to be knitting! Also crocheting a simple chevron scarf.

heather said...

I'm currently going back to an old favorite - Monkeys by Cookie A. As soon as you memorize the lace repeat, these socks fly off the needles.

KnittySue said...

Love that pattern...I'd love to make it. On my needles right now is a hat for my grand daughter and a sweater for my grandson. Just finished a ladybug hat and mittens for my niece that I'll be posting the pattern for very soon.
Have fun in Mexico!

Catie said...

I'd love to knit up that pattern for a family member!

Hi. What's on my needles? Christmas knitting, of course! Lots and lots of Christmas knitting - and time is running short! AHH! It is already November! :)

StaceyKnitsIt said...

Have been working on the Rowan Earth Strip Wrap. I haven't decided if I will start something else before it is finished. So many knits to knit...

Jean Ashley said...

Enjoy Mexico! I am working on a column of leaves scarf, swatching some Colinette Zanziba in preparation for making a hat, and crocheting some amigurumi.

I'm working on a pair of socks for my toddler with the leftover yarn from a pair of socks for me. We'll match!

Hello-
I am working on my first pair of adult socks (for me-yeah). I am using a 4 stitch pattern from Sensational Socks. I love it!
Just yesterday I was looking at Cowl patterns on Rav. Maybe this was meant to be.

Hi! I have a baby sweater, baby longies, Overalls and fingerless mittens. I think I have a problem :)

JanetK said...

(do over) I forgot to comment on what I'm knitting before I hit "post" - I love this cowl and am in need of some small projects for gifts. Right now I'm finishing a "Heather Hoodie" for my daughter, and have on the needles a pair of socks, a hibernating "Mosaic" sweater, and a "Buttony Cardigan" that needs to be frogged due to sizing issues...

citations said...

Currently otn: a minimalist cardigan, a honey cowl, a Cecily MacDonald shawl, and a Chinook shawl. And maybe some other random things. I've had my eye on this cowl pattern for a while.

stephanie rj said...

Just a few hours ago wove in the 750th end on a Bear Claw Blanket, hooray! Now onto a lovely quick hat for a friend in Tosh Bulky, mmm.

Sara said...

The cowl pattern is really pretty.

On needles right now - a shawl...

Sandie said...

Hi Ve!! Currently on my needles? Well, considering that I always have multiple projects going at one time, here's the current needle content: 2 sets of fingerless gloves (one in pinky purple) and one in Tuscan sunset colorway. 2 baby hats (one is a santa hat, one a variegated pink), a shawl, a scarf and a cardi sweater.

Yeah, I'm nuts. ;o)

Loca4crafts said...

On the needles right now, I have a skull and crossbones washcloth and a baby blanket. Both projects are taking way too long, but I had to have finger surgery this summer, and it is still affecting my ability to knit for an extended period of time.

Lara said...

On my needles: four Christmas present scarves: two lace-weight mohair lovelies, and two keep-cosy worsted weights.

Judi A. said...

Knitting a sweater vest for a friend and also lot of face/dishcloths to give as gifts to each female that attends our Christmas open house. :-)

On the needles at the moment is a simple short-sleeve baby cardigan for a charity group I belong to. Itching to start more, but my yarn order has not arrived as yet

Mindy said...

I have a bunch of projects on needles but the one I'm really trying to get done is my Parfait Dress. I want to wear it for New Year's Eve! :)

Tanya said...

Hi! I currently have more projects on the needles than I care to admit to, but the one I'm working on that has a deadline (and therefore tends to take precedence) is a baby blanket for my dear childhood friend who is expecting.

Rebekah Pope said...

Hi! I am currently working on my Christmas gifts and right now have my sister's shawl on my needles.

jensknits said...

I just love that cowl! Would make great gifts...after I made one for me!!

I have "little pumpkin socks" on my needles made from foxfire sock yarn in "sweet potato"...really lovely stuff. Hope to wear them for Thanksgiving!

Clicky Needles said...

Currently OTN, a lovely chunky waistcoat to keep those winter chills out. I have become a very selfish knitter of late!

Michelle said...

Currently on my needles are a couple christmas gifts, a pair of socks for me, and 2 sweaters also for me!

I've been thinking of buying Alan's pattern for a Christmas project for a couple people so it's be awesome if I won!

A couple of second socks. I'm making progress, I just keep getting distracted!

Hello there! I've got a pair of fingerless gloves (love these things) on my needles!

ravid = flowerpot2

Marlitharn said...

Oddly enough, I only have one project on the needles at the moment (I usually have at least two going). And this one's not behaving, in fact it's being quite hostile, and is in grave danger of being ripped out and turned into something completely different. I'm still thinking about it.

Susan said...

Must I admit all that is on my needles? I am making a February Lady sweater for my sister, my first toe-up sock, a wrap cardigan for me (almost done) and a half-felted bag for my daughter.

cmflame said...

That cowl is just what my mother ordered: something warm to go around her neck that doesn't go over her head or add bulk around her neck! Currently on the needles I have 3 different socks in various stages of completion.

Theresa said...

Hi!

Lots of things on my needles right now. Working on the Turn a Square hat and a Clapotis.

Gabriela said...

Hi there!

I've got about 8 projects on the needles right now. I'm trying to power through the last section of Citron in Malabrigo Sock so that I can move on to Christmas gifts that are not already accounted for in the 8 projects on the needles.

(Wow! That's one huge run-on sentence!)

I'm currently working on a pair of gloves for myself and a sweater for my friend.

mountainweaver said...

I love the cowl! Perfect for our Montana winters. My needles are momentarily empty right now. Need to get started on Christmas projects.

Jenny May (renewedmind on rav) said...

Hi there! Beautiful cowl. I am currently working on a little boy sweater for my son for Christmas - shhhh :) Have a great trip.

fiberfrontlines said...

Looks delicious!! I love Misti Alpaca. Still got lotsa Christmas knitting going on, but my August start still has me ahead of the game! That's a first!!

Heather said...

Oh my goodness - does your brother come with the cowl? He's delicious! Currently on my needles is Icarus, a shawl I've been knitting for over a YEAR. I'm 5 rows from cast off. I can't wait!

mamalefae said...

Dont enter me, I've got my hands full :)

Just wanted to say that you rock for such awesome giveaways! Happy knitting!

Knitschmidt said...

Hi and LOVE! I'm such a sucker for Misti!

I just finished "a very braidy cowl" for me yesterday, but still have several hats for other people on the needles.

melonkelli said...

I've got a February Lady Sweater on the needles -- I'm hoping that I'll have it done by February.

Cindy said...

I have the Seneca sweater on my needles, and some Marlene socks that I am converting into mittens. Thanks!

Darleen G said...

What's on my needles now? Where do I begin??? Two pair of mittens for charity, a pair of fingerless mitts for my sister for Christmas, a pair of mittens for me and a cowl for me. There is also a raglan cardigan that is 99% finished. Just waiting for the underarm seaming and working in the all yarn ends. I would love to add that cowl to my list!

Danielle said...

I'm currently knitting a scarf for a family member. Hopefully I'll finish it by Christmas!

Devani said...

Wow. Cool pattern! I'm currently knitting my first cowl (Ithacowl on Ravelry) and loving the squishiness of the city tweed (knitpicks). Also knitting cocoknits pleated ballet slippers. So happy to be knitting! (^-^)/~o

Elysa said...

I currently have things on 5 separate sets of needles. A handbag; faraway so close shawl; 2 different scarves and an afghan square.

Faye said...

Hi! I'm currently busy on a huge, robin-blue infinity scarf that will be snuggling with my neck all summer! :)

Celeste said...

Hey! I'm still working on my skirt. Only 12 and 1/2 rounds to go, so the moment of truth (is this going to fit me???) is almost here.

InJuneau said...

Howdy! Hope you're having a great time in Mexico!

On my needles? The ENDLESS Airy Scarf that I'm trying to finish in time for Public Market. I recently finished a bunch of Ruffle Bottle Sleeves for a Rav friend's fundraiser and plan to knit some more for my family and friends for the holidays, but the darned scarf is all that's actually on needles at the moment.

Little Miss S. said...

I've got so many projects on the needles - all Christmas presents... I'm aiming for 18 finished items and have a long way to go still - mainly socks and mittens.

Reikjavyk said...

Hi! My needles/hooks are reaaally quiet right now. Should start something for my cousin's soon-to-be-born baby girl :)

I'm trying to whip up some quick fingerless gloves to match my new rain jacket!

billicummings said...

Would love to knit the collar with the alpaca yarn! Count me in!

Anonymous said...

I have multiple projects on needles right now. :/ But that's just the way I knit! And I do finish them eventually. I am working mostly on the November sock, a plain sock in a gorgeous hand dyed yarn I bought from an etsy seller. It makes me happy to see all the colours in it. samm@ravelry

Sabrina said...

Hey, I'm attempting to knit my own patter for an earwarmer headband thingy. We'll see if it works or not.

Denise Cole said...

I am a monogamous knitter and I just finished a few toys for my daughter so I am in the process of making up my mind... I love this collared cowl!

Needles And Ewe said...

I'm currently working on Sedum. I know some people switched to stockinette instead, and I'm asking myself why I didn't...but as tired as I am of it, the seed stitching looks amazing!

kjgonn said...

I am currently making a Rosalind shawl by Sylvia Harding and the boheme child's sweater from Knitty and crocheting starwars amigurumi.

rowndabout said...

The cowl is perfect but knit in Misti Alpaca makes it out of this world!

Kristen said...

It DOES look "squish-a-licious"! Right now I'm about to rip an unfinished Citron. I'm not liking it in the yarn I'm using.

Nuttygal said...

Hi I have way to many projects on my needles, but right now I am trying to finish my niece's tiny tea leaves cardi for xmas

Tracy said...

i'm finishing up some baby booties and a cat stuffie for a friend whose baby is due in january!

Eva said...

Right now I have the mmario mmystery shawl (I'm 2 clues behind. Oops) also a light mock cable cowl for a Christmas gift, and the 2nd in a pair of gloves that I've been working on since... well several months. I'm also trying to felt a slipper.. trying because it isn't working.

One Sheep said...

I've finished everything that has to be done this month, now I'm working on organizing stash and getting Xmas projects selected and prioritized so I can start an intensive knitathon.

Charlene Tiedemann said...

Lovely cowl! I'm currently working on the "Cabled Vest" by Norah Gaughan from the Fall 2010 VogueKnitting magazine (page 94). Its actually my first adult clothing item that's not a hat, gloves or scarf.Seems to be going well and I'm loving the interesting cable designs! The vest is for me (I've been feeling a little selfish about that) and I've been putting off gifts for the holidays! This would be perfect for my man!

So excited, just found this site and am gonna bookmark it!

josiekitten said...

That cowl is just perfect! I have way too much OTN at the moment - socks, scarves shawls, blankets...... last count 11 unfinished projects. Must try harder!

Jaime P said...

A kidsilk haze shawl, socks from the latest knitty and a bunny form itty-bitty toys!

JodyH said...

I'm working on some mittens, and I sure could use a nice cowl to go with them!

soxanne said...

Hi~ I have a Tea Leaves cardigan and a sock otn at the moment. Both keep getting put on the back burner as I churn out hats for my son and his friends.

Carrie B said...

I have a lacy baktus on the needles, the Deciduous Wrap and a baby sweater.

Tish said...

Hello! Currently, I have many projects on needles but at the top of the list are thrummed mittens, a moebius scarf and a shawl for holiday gifts. That being said, I could use another pattern/kit for more quick gifts 'cuz the clock is ticking!!

I hope Mexico was fabulous!!^_^

Jez said...

Hi! Right now I'm working on my second sweater: owls! I just got past the ribbing. I'm really excited to try it on.

I also have a meandering vines shawl sitting around on the needles, along with two long-term crochet projects (hexagon blanket and granny square blanket).

I just got my stitch sampler shawl off the needles last night, and it's blocking right now. The colors are beautiful [silk garden 279].

knitandcurl said...

Wow! Sounds like a great give-away. I've knit with Misti Alpaca Chunky and it's an absolute DREAM to work with.
Right now I'm knitting and felting, embroidering and embellishing teapot cozies for my etsy shop. Trying to beef up my inventory for the Christmas rush. They make such great gifts.

mhchong said...

Wow, your brother wears that cowl well. Super Cute! And that cowl is not so bad either!
On my needles: Honey Cowl for my daughter (because who doesn't love a cowl?), Austin Hoodie for me, hat for my son, and Damson for a gift. Is that too many WIPs?

Gillian said...

Hi! What a beautiful pattern :D I'm currently knitting a pair of stripy sock (for my former roommate who's now teaching in the mountains of Mexico and living in an unheated apartment!) and working on a lace-weight, beaded shawl. Something simple and cushy like that cowl would be perfect when I need a break from the shawl!

purlverde said...

Hello! I saw that cowl pattern somewhere recently and really liked it! I am almost ready to start another project when I finish the Ishbel (by Ysolda Teague) that I am working on. It's been a great knit so far and something fast and fun afterward would be a great reward! My favorite things to knit are cowls and shawls, I'm crazy for them! I'm PurlVerde on Ravelry.

Sharon said...

Hi there! That's a lovely cowl design, and Misti Alpaca...mmm!

I'm knitting several things, with lots more projects in time out - although I do rescue them eventually! Right now I'm in Elizabeth Zimmermann mode with a 4 corners baby blanket in Galway wool, and a Pi shawl in Fleece Artist BFL laceweight.

Lael said...

Well, I do have several things I have to bind off and weave the ends in on - not my favorite thing. And I am almost done with a Multnomah shawl. And I started a pair of socks tonight using some of the yarn I hand dyed a couple of days ago.

Christine said...

SEVEN pairs of socks in all different stages and all different patterns and needles!!! and then the wristwarmes and....I'll stop.

yarnfest said...

Let's see...

I've got a madelinetosh Honey Cowl on needles...

A Really Basic Beanie in Malabrigo single ply (in a gorgeous blue colorway that reminds me of the Mediterranean!)

A lacey scarf that I'm making up as I go along.

And a pair of fingerless gloves in some lovely Sundara Sport weight merino!

All for the BSD Project found at http://yarnfest.wordpress.com

Julie said...

I'm terrible - I have a number of projects. And am swatching for another. But the one I'm trying to finish is a simple mistake rib scarf for my best friend's husband (for xmas). Thanks for the give away.

d said...

Hi! I'm currently working on holiday gifts - each of which I've knit THREE times already (you'd think I'd learn to swatch, wouldn't you?!)! So a cowl seems like just the perfect thing for me to start ...! Thanks for the chance!

Brenda said...

On the needles: a slouchy vest of my own design (pattern to be published soon) and the Snug sweater for my baby granddaughter.

Hi!

The cowl pattern looks really great.

Right now I'm up to my ears in Christmas knitting. I'm almost finished with a British School Slipover from Cheryl Oberle's Folk Vests and a Hermia sweater (by Allison Green Will) for my sister in law. Add to that a pile of unfinished socks and that's what's on my needles.

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

Hi,
Have fun in Mexico. I am working on a hooded scarf for my neighbor for Christmas. I am also working on a shawl and some afghan squares for charity.

Hi! I'm currently knitting the one row scarf with some yummy malabrigo worsted. It's a great pattern for knitting in the car to Sydney and back.

Hi! I just started my first sweater, a little baby one. I think it's going to be really cute.

What's on my needles? Soakers, soakers, soakers! I'm finishing up a new design, so I have been knitting lots of sample soakers for pattern pics. The one on the needles right now has ruffles on the bum. I love it!

Plus, I have a pair of socks patiently waiting for me to finish all the soakers. They're getting lonely. ;o)

Socks! 2 sweaters and unending number of catnip mice ( my cat can disapear them as fast as I can make them. If I didn't have stone floors I'd say he had a stash under a floorboard) and some of Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys critters.

HI! I hope you're having a great time in Mexico. I went for a day once to Tijuana and had a good time.

Currently on my needles I have on a puppy dog, a 4 yr olds bolero and a long list of ppl to still knit for. That cowl would look perfect for my male friend who is really into the movies Twilight. It'll give him more of an Edward look. Super cool.
