These are two pics of the last cowl I made for my cousin's birthday. I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in the oatmeal colorway. It used up most of the skein and I was pretty pleased with the end result. This time I was able to do the flower according to the pattern rather than two little flowers from a crochet flower book that I had the last time. My cousin loved it!
And, finally, the first finished hand spun skein of the year! I'm not quite sure about the yardage because I seem to be inept in figuring out how to measure from my niddy noddy. So, I have no details except that I have more than enough singles spun to make a hat for Michael. I learned that I will probably not spin singles again for a long time. They were pretty kinky and calmed down slightly after their bath but not enough for my liking. The next fiber I have is pink and the fiber is from Spinner's Hill Top. The singles on my spindle look so pretty and I am so excited to ply them!
