2 Gifts, done!




Finished is the wool cowl made from the rest of the Schoppel Wolle Pur yarn from the hat I made for Preston.
It is warm and toasty and perfect to wear under a coat when you don't want long scarf ends hanging or dragging, slammed in the car door for the whole ride home from the supermarket. Ask me how I know.......

And here is another finished pair of plain socks in fancy yarn. The yarn is Paton's Kroy stripes and again, they became fraternal twins, as the stripes progressed in the opposite directions. Resting in the snow,
they should remind you how cozy it is to wear handknit socks as the snow flies, and the thermostat is turned down. Those who think knitting socks is crazy, have never worn handknit socks in the winter, so here is my advice to you: Befriend your sock knitting friends and beg for hand knit socks....you won't be sorry. Or better yet, learn how yourself.

Great neck warmer and the socks are beautiful. I love Paton yarn and use it often.

Oooo, I love those stripes. Def. going on my list of socks to make once I finally get the hang of it.

And again, love the cowl. That yarn is simply fabulous.

Lovely gifts! I love the wide stripes on the socks - I've been looking for something like that rather than the small stripes on all my pairs.

Love the hat/cowl. And Liz, tell me, how do you know about the ends of a scarf and car doors?
