Another Gift Off the Needles!

This is a super fast knit - The Birthday Cowl! Just 2 rows to the pattern and I did this with one skein of Classic Elite Angora (Lush) that I bought the other day. I can't say who the recipient is (they might be reading this!) but I do hope they like it. It's super soft and having tried it on to take these pictures I know for sure it will be super warm and cozy too :-)
If you aren't a member of Ravelry, you can find the 'free' pattern HERE. I'm loving these little quick knits and I've already cast on with the Noro for more lovely wrist warmers. I CAN tell you who they will be gifted to, because I know she doesn't read this blog (she's not even aware it exists!), they will be for Kristen's piano teacher for Christmas.

Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes, I had a lovely day on Saturday. My favorite part was having a candle lit dinner out on the balcony with my hubby. It felt like we were in our very own private restaurant :-)

So soft and pretty. That is one of my favorite fibers. I love that shade of blue. Sometimes the quick knits are so much more satisfying that the larger projects. Instant gratification!

Hum. Now you have given me pause. I have a skein of lush that I bought to knit a mouse from K2Together. But, maybe it would make a better cowl!
