It’s with a sigh of relief that I can blog about FINALLY finishing this cowl! It started out as what I thought would be a quick knit but alas, a combination of life & a bit of boredom with the knit, combined with the fact that I was working with a 318 stitch pattern with sock yarn made it take a little while.
All things aside, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. It will replace a cowl that I had the misfortune of misplacing before the end of 2016. Pretty happy with the stitch definition. The pattern itself works well with variegated sock yarn, which is always a plus.

I started working on these when I misplaced my other pair of fingerless gloves. I got years of wear out of them so they did their job well!
Here’s the finished product:
I’m pretty pleased with how these look. I think they’d also make a good gift as well. Great way to use up about 1/4 skein of any yarn.
See you in 2017.
This throw is the first knitting project that I’ve completed since I went on a knitting hiatus for 2 years. It took me about 2.25 months to finish it. Not bad for jumping into it after taking a break:
Been a while since I worked on a simple garter stitch project. Love the simplicity.
Border 1 = done 🙂
As I worked on it, I thought a lot about the role hospice plays in the United States. I am thankful for the existence of palliative care and wish more people knew about it.
Love the pops of red against the neutral colors. Great stash buster.
Love how it all looks together.
Today, I dropped the blanket in the mail. It now goes to join hospice teams in my region to contribute towards the goals that all hospice staff have: to provide patients with comfort and to help them live the lives they want to live.
