As it’s ski season (a.k.a. ‘shoop shoop’ season), I could feel my little hands itching to create a new accessory to show off on the slopes. And as I previously mentioned I came across a nice simple cowl pattern by Jo Kelly Designs in K1 Yarns on Wednesday. I had until Sunday to complete my knit and despite the pessimism on the part of my boyfriend, I managed it!
The pattern is very simple, and I managed to learn a new technique ‘tucking.’ It’s very simple and effective, especially for a skiing cowl. It keeps warm little pockets of air around your neck and keeps you toasty without the bulk of a scarf. I kept it in a simple muted color so I could team it with more. I’m such a fan of it that I’m even wearing it now sitting at my desk. It was great for snowboarding on Sunday. If your planning a trip to Glenshee, I’d get there soon, it’s melting fast. I managed to take a quick photo on the way home though, I was having far too much fun to take photos earlier.
Now that it’s Monday, my mission is to get beading and making jewelry in preparation for the Scottish Bead Fair on Sunday.
