i can't really tell you how excited i was when she was all for me knitting for her! yippeee!
well what am i saying, usually any excuse for me to me casting on for another project and knitting happily away makes me a happy girl. :)
enter the bobette cowl and mitten set. this duo whipped up in no time.
it is very clearly written. and the instructions are easy to understand. it had been a while since i had done a bobble... i had no problems whipping them out in this project :)
i wish we could get plucky knitter at my lys, but as that isn't the case, i opted for my tried and true standby.. of cascade 220. i'm sure the pair would be softer and sproingier with yarn more like the plucky knitter's.. but i am pleased with the results nonetheless..
also, i just love the vibrant blue.
the size of the cowl is also just perfect for spring too.. not too bulky, but adds the perfect amount of warmth.
not only does jill write knitting patterns, she is the force behind the coolest crafting stationary i have ever seen!
honestly any of her tags make the perfect accompaniment to any gift you'll be gifting throughout the year. genius, i tell you. there's more too! including notepads, bags and more! i don't know if you know this, but i have a love affair of stationary. journals are my fave.. i just love love love all of the pretty paper. so you can imagine my glee when i saw these perfect tags! (honestly, so so perfect for chrsitmas!!) and to top it all off, she does graphic design too!
so really, you're in a win win when you choose to knit up her patterns!
