Remember the Bella Cowl? Well, I receive quite a few emails about this pattern. It is a 4 stitch, 4 row repeat that seems to play tricks on our minds.
SO, my sister Shelly and I put together a little tutorial while we were away last month. We had so much fun giggling and trying to keep my mom and other sister, Lisa, quiet. I really hope I never forget my sister saying, "Quiet on the set! A Friend to knit with, bella cowl, Take 52." I still giggle thinking about it as I do watching this video.
It took us about 300 attemepts and then it took days of waiting for Andrew to help me put it all together.
The pattern is under the header in the "simple knitting patterns" tab. And this will be over on youtube if you ever need a little help. (Or a good laugh.)
I've had this yarn in my stash for quite some time. I actually can't even remember how long it's been stashed. But, I do remember, my mom rolled all of the skeins into balls for me while visiting. It sat there because I changed my mind about the project it was intended for.
A couple of weeks ago, I spotted Madge. And, I quickly dug into the stash. I sure hope it is going to work. So far it seems a little heavy. And maybe a little stiff. However, I'm going to forge on and see what happens.
I have been documenting my children's birthdays here since I started my blog. Nine years ago. I love/hate looking back at the birthday posts. I get all sentimental looking at them. But, I love the record I have of that day.
We have been using Chalk Lots since her fourteenth birthday. But that was the year I didn't record her birthday here. I wish I would have. But, I'm assuming Life was just a little overwhelming that year. And that we were doing some healing. We did celebrate the same way. I guess I just wasn't as inspired to document it here.
