Another one off the needles, another one for me! And goodness, that means more photos of me, and there are only more coming I dare say. It really is by chance that every one of the knits I'm finishing up first happens to be for myself. But then again, no one else in my life really needs a knit anything, so it might as well be this way. (Though they're still getting some knit things coming their way, need or no need.)
This cowl was a quick knit, and a test knit of sorts, for an upcoming class we're hosting at the Taproot Market in Portland. A Learn to Knit (this cowl!) with Hannah Welling. The yarn is hers, and I love it so. Most especially I suppose because it's so soft and cozy and has a great drape too. But also because I know the beautiful and loved sheep that the wool came from, and I know the shepherdess and her enormous heart and care for her flock! We've had a bit of a rough go in our barn with our own flock this past week, and I've found myself in the barn for more hours than I can count, trying to puzzle it out and nursing one of our sheep back to her feet (I'm happy to say she's well once again, little Thalia). I've sent countless texts and made many phone calls to my small but mighty group of fellow sheep keeping friends and I'm eternally grateful for their help and guidance. I'm blessed by their friendship and advice!
If you're in Portland would like to join us for this class, we'd love to have you! A great farm lunch will be provided by Lauren of Swallowtail Farm. You can find all the details here. And after the class, I believe Hannah will be making this pattern available for purchase on Ravelry.
Onto the next one....!
P.S. - The green sweater is my Shalom that I made oh so long ago. I still wear it tons and love that sweater!
