Honeymoon yarn

Being a true Knitter, there was no way I was going to miss an excuse to buy yarn. So I batted my eyelashes at my husband and asked if we could make a stop at an Orlando yarn shop. He agreed, and we commenced our shopping at The Knitting Patch. So. Much Beautiful. Yarn! It seemed like every other yarn I pulled out to look at was Hedgehog Fibers, so obviously my soul needed some – I bought 2 skeins of sock yarn in “Nutmeg.”

My husband and I wrote some funy vows for each other – one of my vows was to knit for him – whether he liked it or not. So I convinced him to pick out some yarn for me to knit him a hat. He showed good taste by choosing Zauberball.

And lastly, in the sale bin a lonely skein of Colinette Cannelloni called my name. And I couldn’t resist. She is so bright and happy (and I have no idea what I will knit with her, but that is not the point).


Honey(moon) Cowl

It’s finished! Happy Dance!

I started this project a few weeks ago because I wanted a simple, satisfying knit to help me de-stress about my wedding. Then I took it with me on my honeymoon (even though I only knit on it in the car on the way there and back).

Pattern: Honey Cowl by Antonia Shankland

Yarn: my first handspun on my new wheel! (probably a Sport or DK weight)

Modifications: I don’t like rolled hems, so I knit a folded picot hem (more information on my project page).
