A New Year, A New Adventure.

The first post in a new space.  How daunting.  I was once a live journal girl, however, in the last few years I've stopped posting there and just go to read other peoples postings.  I wanted to start a new year, my new life, my new outlook with a brand new space.

I've decided to join Yarn Along each Wednesday as a way to both start posting more about my knitting and a way to get me back in the habit of at least once a week writing and posting.

This week I finished a cowl that I made after another cowl that I had purchased a few years ago.  It is made out of stretchy, soft t-shirt material and drapes beautifully.  I knew using yarn, the drape would be different, but to make up for that I alternated rows of knitting and purling hoping to give it a similar draping effect.  It looks nothing like my other cowl, but I love how it turned out.  So soft and snuggly, and so crazy long.  I finally used two of the skeins of the Reynolds no 1 mohair that I found at a thrift store a few years ago.  It was a perfect choice.  Now I just need to figure out what else to make out of the remaining 11 skeins!

This weekend I'll work on better photo's, I took these last night after a long day at work on my phone.  And yes, that is white cat hair in my knitting.
