I am done with my Christmas crochet/knitting creating. I may not be done with all creating but creating of the crochet or knitted kind is finished. I made the last cowl for Little Buddy's babysitter. She watches him every Monday and Wednesday while I am at work. I love her and so does he. She loves purple so I decided she needed a cowl too.
Yes another Malabrigo Rios Cowl. I usually make her a shawl, but she is getting a cowl this year instead. She likes to walk in the park and believe it or not it has been chilly here recently. I thought this might keep her neck warm on chilly mornings.
I love the variations in color in Malabrigo yarn, and it is just so soft to work with.
Then I decided to use the Cascade Yarn Eco Duo yarn I bought in Ohio to make myself a cowl, too. Now I just about love this yarn more than any yarn I have ever worked with, and I love this exact color. I now have this cowl, a large basket weave cowl, and a Queen Anne's Lace Scarf all made from this exact same yarn in the exact same color. Knowing myself, next time I see it in a store I will probably buy some more. I just can't seem to help myself.
It is so pretty and soft who can resist?
Now for Little Buddy. Apparently he took a big fall on the playground today near the sandbox. His poor little face hit the fence and I think the fence won. He was very sad when he got home from school, I can't blame him, I bet that it was pretty scary. I know his teachers took great care of him and I told them that little, active boys are going to fall, no matter how hard we try to watch them. It is all part of growing up and exploring. I have a feeling this sweet face is going to look worse before it looks better.
Hope you are not feeling as beat up as this little one is looking.
