this time it's cowls! you remember the summer sweater knit a long with luvinthemommyhood, right? well shannon and i have decided to join forces to do another one! this one is the carefree cowl knit along! how fun!!! to make things simpler just head on over to luvinthemommyhood for all of the posts and sign up info. also be sure to check out luvinthemommyhood's ravelry group. we'll have a thread set up for you shortly all on the carefree cowl KAL. it's a great space to chat about what we're knitting up, and talk yarns, frustrations, loves.. etc.. just a great space for us to help eachother out with our projects.
i'll be a lucky guest poster every once in a while!
so to start things off.... wanna see some of my faves? i say some.. because really, it's so hard to narrow it down! i love that you can either go with only one solid colour, or mix 'em up. it's like having a mini blanket around your neck.

i looove cowls. you can still have the look of a super bulky scarf, but not worry about those long tassles getting stuck in the car door.. or stepping on them... or unwrapping itself from you when you're trying to pick up groceries or kids or something... (what.. you know it's happened). haha. ok ok so maybe i'm exaggerating a little bit... but really i do love cowls! i think they're practical.... (truth be told, i actually love scarves too... but we're talking cowls here) haha. so let's stay focused. i think i like cowls so much because they're a lot quicker to knit up... and they're such pretty accessories! i do have to say that lately, i am a fan of the uber bulky cowl... they're just such quick and satisfying knits!

however i seem to be dangerously intrigued by this one...
i know.. i have no time to knit something with this much detail right now, but how beautiful is this!? soo gorgeous. this is the Inspira Cowl by celery stalked. there seems to be so many options for this pattern!
i haven't yet decided on the cowl i'll be knitting up... so i'll have to choose quickly!
