The One That Got Away

You could call this
The Cowl That Got Away,
 or maybe
The Cowl I Gave Away.
 I offered it to Groovy Girl
while I was knitting it
because the pink
would be perfect with her dark hair and eyes.
I never DREAMED she would take it.
She is a fashionista and this is a hand knit...
I had grown to like it for myself,
but as she carried it away
with a pleased, "Thanks, Mom!"
it was all good with me.

Pattern:  Last Minute Cowl
              free pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas

Yarn:  SMC Select, Silk Wool

Naked Knuckles and Neon

If these were mine...
 I would have worn them today.
If these were mine...
 I probably would have been peppier today.

Guess I'll have to make
a pair
for myself.

(I modified the neon pair by extending the length beyond the thumb
far enough to make a cuff which can be rolled down to cover
the entire length of the fingers)

Yarn:  Grey is Madelinetosh
Green is Regia Fluormainia in Leaf colorway
