This quickly turned into the week of simple cowls! But before that...
I finished my last Christmas present and got them all wrapped and under the tree! Here is a scarf for my Grandpa seconds before I wrapped it!
Now it's time for cowls. I had seen several people making tube scarfs and I really wanted to try it but it ended up being much too large of a tube because of the needles I had, so it quickly became a cowl. I just sort of winged this one.

I also finished my mystery KAL which turned out to be a shawl! Does anyone have any idea for blocking acrylic? I tried it once by steaming it with my iron and letting it sit pinned overnight and nothing happened. I think I need something that steams better.
Here is my sister modeling it in her robe lol!
I finished 3 more ornaments, I want to do a few more so I can have them as little gifts on the tree! As you can see a few have already been claimed by family members!
Finishing up the mystery kal freed up a needle size I needed to complete this cowl pattern. I am in love with this yarn, it's Lion Brand's Amazing!

Being my first holiday season really doing yarn crafts I've only made presents for my family but being all done with those I realized I could make a friend a birthday gift! I am using this cowl pattern. I love the seed stitch, it's so pretty!
