This week has gotten of to a really great start. First, I finished up my honey cowl! I am really happy with it. It is so thick and cozy and cute, and I can't believe that I made it. I definitely recommend this pattern, and it is especially great for a beginner like me. You can find more info on Ravelry.
Oh, but trying to take a good photo of it on? Not so fun. Self portaits, ugh. This is the best I got.
I started a second honey cowl yesterday. This time I am using Malabrigo Silky in burgandy, and I am making the middle size. I think I'm going to omit the rolled edges.
More good things? I had a little "me time" yesterday afternoon, that doesn't happen too often. Spent some time at Starbucks knitting, of course. I do love those red cups.
And happy mail! I received this great pillow Monday from the Pillow Talk Swap. It is from Brenda, and she did such a nice job. She was sweet enough to include a bunch of Cosmo floss, which I was really needing for my AMH Needleworks project. Thanks again, Brenda!
My friend Jeni sent me some Salty Caramel Sauce too... it is delicious! And it is gone already. :)
I got to do some farming for the first time in over a month! How I have missed those little blocks. I made 4 on Monday, and have plans to make a couple more today. I'll be back tomorrow with those.
I also stopped at JoAnn's yesterday to pick up some backing for my Swoon quilt. By that I mean drove 45 minutes to get there. And what did I realize when I got there? I totally forgot my 40% off coupon. Bummer! Guess I'll need to make another trip soon.
Hope you are having a good week, too!
