Another week, another cowl or two

I am still in the clutches of that Lion Brand Amazing yarn and the Urban Lace Infinity Cowl. Here is the cowl I showed being blocked last Friday. This yarn  colorway is called Wildflowers.

One side...

and the other side.

I love how there is always a rogue swath of color in each of these skeins. And I wish you could see these yarns yourself. My pictures do not do them justice. They are so pretty.

So I had started a fourth cowl last Friday and this is the Arcadia colorway.

It needs to be blocked and kitchner. Its on my list of things to do this weekend.

And since I "finished" this skein of this yarn I cast on another. This one is called Aurora and has pink, purple,copper and blue. I think it will be gorgeous. Check back next week.

Also I was able to rescue a pair of socks from my basket of onesies.

This yarn came from Joanns eons ago. I think it was the Serenity line. It is very soft.

All in all it was a pretty productive week in the knitting area. I do enjoy this mindless kind of knitting where the yarn does all the heavy lifting. Those Amazing yarns are truly Amazing. I become mesmerized watching the colors unroll off the skein - yes I am easily entertained - LOL!

Hope things in your little world are warm and cozy no matter what it is outside. We've got more snow on the way and I don't think we are going to break the freezing mark in the next 10 days. I know it is even worse in the Plains and the Northeast, and the West is in drought conditions. I'm sure that all of us who are manning snow shovels would love to be able to send this precipitation to you. Lets hope thing improve all over the US very very soon.

Happy knitting-
carol fun


  1. Your cowls are so pretty! :0)

  2. Very Pretty Scarf - never would believe those pics were of the same scarf... totally different colors!

  3. What a color treat for the eyes in your post this week! And your socks look very comfy :) You were very busy!!!

  4. Love the yarns you are using! I'm going to have to look into those. Your projects are beautiful.

  5. Just love those cowls, and yep I have sock envy!

  6. Perfect activity for this weather!

  7. OK, I officially want one of these, but I don't want to learn how to knit again. I say again, because my grandmother taught me about 50 years ago and I forgot! I cannot get done with my non-knitting items! I am totally in love with the Lion Brand Amazing Yarn Mesa! Would you consider "selling" one or trading/bartering something???

  8. oh I just love the one with all those beautiful pink and purple and blue colors. I will be back next week to see how it is progressing. I am visiting from grow your blog.

  9. Hi Carol,

    I'm visiting from the Grow Your Blog party. It is so nice to meet you and to see your knitting projects. Something I wish I knew how to do. It is so cold here in NY I could use those socks ... LOL. I plan to look around a bit more and then be on my way to visit the others. I do hope you will stop by for a visit and enter my giveaway. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs – Donna
