Happy Friday everyone! I just completed this granny square cowl and couldn't wait to show you. I saw a version of this cowl on the famous Crochet with Raymond blog by Alice, quite a while ago. When I went to purchase my therapy yarn, and saw this lovely variegated yarn, I thought it would be perfect for this project.
A lovely picture of me in my bathroom. Sorry for the picture but you get an idea of the size of the cowl. I used Classic Shades, machine washable, acrylic/wool blend yarn from Universal Yarn. This is a new yarn carried by my local yarn shop Uncommon Threads, in Palm Harbor Florida. It comes in these amazing shade combinations and crochets up so beautifully. It took about 2 and 1/2 skeins of yarn for this project, but could have easily taken less if the granny squares were a bit smaller. I made 5 very big granny squares, hooked together as I went along, made a border on each side, and hooray my 27 th project of the year is finished. This yarn is very reasonable price for 197 yards, so you just can't go wrong. I bought several more shades with thoughts of a several more cowls, or even some wonderful Queen Anne Lace Scarves. The variations in the colors would be beautiful in the scarf. I really love it and it is sooooooooo soft. Now I have to ask myself why I am having an obsession with cowls when it is 90 degrees here in Florida?
For those animal lovers out there my sister Claudia has been watching a Robin's nest up close. It is right outside her front door, the babies are adorable. Go and have a look. Claudia's blog is amazing and she is just the best sister. She has like a zillion followers and she is the reason I started my blog. Go peek at the babies it will brighten your day.
And quickly I wanted to say I have been having a ton of trouble leaving comments on blogs. I have to sign into blogger and if I stay signed in I can't leave a comment, if I sign out I can. Don't know what is up with all of that, so I just wanted to say I am reading all of your blogs, just may not be able to comment.
Happy Friday, and hopefully a restful weekend is in store for everyone.
