Knits, etc ...

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

Just a quick post update about my recent knits.

My co-workers are having a baby girl in January and her name will Lydia. I work with the woman of the co-worker couple, Amanda, she's a fantastic lady. She loves Beetlejuice, skulls, black and red and animals. So I decided to knit baby items to suit her likes.

My most recent FO is a cowl for my Mom for xmas. I used Lion Brand Heartland in “Hot Springs”. It is actually one of the better acrylics I’ve knit with. Very soft and not splitty at all. I don’t know that I’ve used any of the Lion Brand products before, but I can say I’ll likely use this one again. The pattern is Harvest Loop.

My newest knit is a Honey Cowl for my friend who has a birthday coming up. I'm about halfway finished, but don't have any decent pictures to share. This is the third time I've knit this pattern. It's a really great cowl. I'm using Wandering Cat Yarns Barn Cat in Wicked Nights.
