Notes & mods:

  • Cast on 88 sts as per pattern, to make a narrower cowl.

  • Thanks to the alpaca, this is a really warm cowl.

D. I. Why?

D. I. Why?

Having spent the better part of a week with this little lot

D.I.Why?

I have discovered that sometimes it really, really matters if your spirit level looks like this

level not level enough

If you have a shelf measuring 62 cm by 110 cm the spirit level being out by that small amount matters when it comes to fitting sliding doors.

Ugh.

In good, knitting-related news, my bag pattern seems to have been well-recieved (thank you for your kind words) as was this yarn I got in a swap on Ravelry:

pink lace weight yarn

You can see it reclining on my design notebook with not a care in the world!

Little does it know it’s going to be subjected to yet another of my attempts at a mystery lace knit along!
