all my stealth knitting for christmas was successful..... i just did a really bad job at documenting it with pictures. we had a fabulous time with everyone here......
i didn't ask where she found the idea, but i love it!
so my gift. i asked amythefibergoddess if i could have the yarn to create the brush creek cowlette. i have been a fan of this designer since kntting zuzu's petals. i purchased the pattern knowing that i'd have an opportunity ( and special someone) to make this for. amy wound me the yarn (sw merino in finger weight) and i dyed it in three complementing colorways. i chose shades of purple, not so much influenced by the pattern pic, but suggestions of family members that know linda. i had just enough of the first color, enough of the second and plenty of the third.
one gift i did get a pic of....
the antler hat! will is out in the fall, ready for hunting season so i thought this was a perfect fit. i was in the mood for cables and a fun knit, this didn't disappoint. he's commented ( okay, joked really) about my car magnets, so he has an offical FLFF euro for his truck! and i will be checking to make sure it gets put on :)
still slogging away on the inpira cowl, wishing it was a blanket now that the cold weather has set in.
