I couldn’t help myself when flying home. I had just finished all my Christmas projects and wanted something mindless, quick and cute for me. So, I grabbed a few skeins that were remnants of other projects and printed out the One Row Lace Cowl pattern.
The white cowl I finished before we even got on the plane. We were delayed in Long Beach for two and a half hours because our plane from NY had to stop in Denver to refuel (scary! how did they not plan ahead?!).
The tan cowl I crocheted on our way back to L.A. while watching Food Network Challenges, The Dog Whisperer and a special on the Michael Vick dogs. I like this one better, I made it a few rows longer so it’s slouchier than the white one, it’s also wider so it’s easier to slip on and off.
I actually started my own variation of the pattern with a shell stitch. I’ll post pictures when it’s finished.
Last night I decided to use some of the crochet thread I snagged from my mom’s stash to start a little side project. I know Christmas is over but these were just too cute to wait.
They’re the 10 Different Original Snowflakes. I’ve only made flakes #1 and #2 but you better believe I’m making more of these. I brought home red, green and purple thread so I think I’ll have a few new ornaments for next Christmas!
I hope you all have a safe New Year’s Eve!
