Happily joining Ginny and the gang over at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along.
I made this for the thirtieth birthday of one of my lovely woolly friends ; )
Just thinking this is the very first time I've given one of my own crochet wearables as a gift, which is in itself a gift. So delighted to be at the stage of being able to do that. Working from the same pattern two or three times makes it come so easily. You can see the first one I made here.
I tell you this Manos merino/silk yarn is luxurious beyond belief!
It literally slips through your fingers as you work...it almost seemed to crochet itself : ) The cowl is lightweight enough to be worn indoors. I'll definitely be filing this pattern as a wonderfully do-able, wearable for any age-group. My Mom's up next!
I found this little old book in a charity shop and we've had great fun leafing through it and appreciating its beautifully detailed illustrations. It's an english book from the early seventies. The language used in the description of each bird's call is wonderful! Have I told you I have a weakness for birds..?
Thank you for your lovely comments on last weeks post and I look forward to checking out what's on your needles and your reading list. M x
