A Finished Project & WIP's .......

My mum had been saying she wanted to buy a snood/cowl to keep her head warm when she walks her dogs, so I decided to make one as a Christmas pressie. Unfortunately I didn't manage to finish it on time but she is still over the moon with it. The perfect dog walking accessory in this bitter weather, mind you she hasn't worn it yet as the snow is too deep for walking two little Shih Tzu's.

Pattern : Holland Cowl (free pattern on Ravelry)

Yarn : 3 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky

Needles : 8mm

Now onto some WIP's. The first is a 'Gathered Scarf' using the gorgeous, scrumptious Malabrigo Worsted. I love this yarn, brilliant for hats & scarves & oh so, so soft & warm. I have rather a large stash of this gorgeous yarn under my bed !

The next is a 'Lacy Baktus' scarf using another favorite yarn of mine, Manos Silk Blend. This style of scarf is very much 'in' at the moment & is like a wide, narrow kerchief. that you wrap around your neck & knot at the front.
