Back At It

I have not knit in quite some time, and with the arrival of cooler weather, I really was feeling the desire to get back to it.  I nee lots of practice, and I know it, so I'm just planning on making as many simple projects as I can until I improve.  I have this beautiful purple hand-spun wool from Mountain Mud.  (I've posted the picture before on a Thank You Lord Wednesday). 

Well, I had big plans for this to be made into legwarmers for one of my daughters, and I'm sure it will in due time, but I bought the wrong needles, so another trip to the craft store is in order! In the meantime, I've decided to make a cowl from one of my favorite books: The Rhythm of Family: Discovering a Sense of Wonder through the Seasons.  This great book includes recipes, activities, and other great stuff to do with your family each month of the year.

The pattern is perfect, and the gauge is just right this time (last time I knit it too small).  However, I made the one with a pattern, and I twisted the thing around the needles several times, so some of the pattern is on one side, and some if it is on the other.  My daughters won't mind as they are playing in the snow, so I'm going to keep chugging along.
