I don't love the cowl like I thought I would, but it is fine to wear when it is misty or raining, and will cover my head. I think my disappointment came when I realized I wasn't going to look like a beautiful Hollywood Star! ;-( It is just ME under that red hood...
This is the beginning of one bit. I am almost to the place where the thumb will be started. I just love the way this is crocheting up into the cabled look! The pattern calls for beads, but I have never used beads in crocheting and did not want to start on something that is a new pattern of me.
Palm Fingerless Mitts by Tina Rodriguez
The yarn is Malabrigo Sock in Dewberry. It's just such a joy to use!
And not to be outdone, my sweetest DSD made fingerless mitts for ME!!! These are the cutest things! This is a pattern by Amy Bahrt. Cat-Motif Mitts on Ravelry.
