I hope you all had scrumptious Thanksgiving dinners and survived the madness that was our retail establishments this past weekend. For our part we had a quiet turkey dinner at home with all the fixins'...
...and pie of course!
And we limited our post-Thanksgiving shopping to getting a Christmas tree so we have nary a stubbed toe to show for the Black Friday craziness.
I have been knitting up a storm recently but many of the items will be winging their way to rest beneath Christmas trees so I cannot share them here yet.
So instead I'll share one of my favorite projects from this past year that I haven't shown you here yet.
Pattern: Faberge Cowl by Nina Machlin Dayton (pattern available on Ravelry)
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Vetiver
Needles: Size 7 Addi Turbos (20" I think, maybe 16")
Beads: Size 6/0 Japanese Seed Beads
I knit this as a test knit for Nina and I love it. The beads add just the right touch (they are place with a crochet hook instead of pre-stringing the beads). This is a fantastic pattern: clear instructions, a fun, interesting knit, and beautiful result.
