A Pack of Packages

I’ve been busy putting together packages this week. One of the perks of my job is that we’re a UPS shipping location which means I can have things packaged and picked up from my office. 

First, I’ve been working on a care package for a friend. I finished my shell cowl so that was the first (and I think best part of the package).

It is the first crochet or knitting pattern I’ve ever modified/made. I love it. I hope she sends me pictures of her wearing it. To make it, I chained 70 and did a shell pattern every five stitches with one slip stitch in between each shell. At the end of a round, I slip stitched to the top of the shell and started shelling in the divots, slipping on top of the shells from the prior row.

I also included some treats for her and her new pet!

The second package was for my sister, Megan, who loved the beret I made our sister in law for Christmas and requested one for herself. Here’s a photo of my friend Susan modeling it for me.

Here’s a better view of the back and side. This is a free crochet pattern that I made with Caron Simply Soft yarn. So, my total cost for the beret was $2.50.

Last, was for my oldest friend Nicole. We’ve known each other since kindergarten and I know we’ll still be in touch when we’re grumpy old ladies. It was her birthday this week. So I decided to send her a cowl too. 

I absolutely love putting together little packages for people–especially with fun knitted goodies inside!

  1. LOVE the cowl! Maybe you should write up this pattern and post it to Ravelry!

    The beret has just the right “slouch” to it. Nice work!
