Surprise! A New (Free) Pattern

You may remember the little competition I filled you in on a couple weeks ago.  All this month over at luvunthemommyhood there has been a battle raging between comfy sews and cozy knits.



Earlier this month Shannon invited me to take a turn in the ring to duke it out in the name of handknits- I couldn't be more thrilled to get involved!  For this special occasion, I did up a tutorial for a simple (yet oh-so-comfy-cozy) cowl.   Presenting:  Frosted Glow

Show your support of handknits by stopping by and checking out the tutorial- say hi to Shannon, she's a fellow Raveler (imstitched)!

The pattern is also activated on Ravelry now, so whip one up and add it to your Ravelry project page (in support of the knits, of course!).  You can find the pattern and more information here.

  5. I just may have to rip out current cowl that I've thought about for a year, and felt finally ready to knit some lace.

    OK, maybe I"ll just do this one next.

  12. I'm only on row 15 so far. But I love it. I'm using a baby alpaca.

    I have a question for you. When you do SSK, do you slip the second stitch as if to knit or purl? I've read that slipping the second as if to purl turns out nicer. But I haven't tried it yet for a lace project.

    I'm thinking it looks nicer when you are trying to match a k2tog decrease for a sweater shoulder or neck.
