This year I'm happily taking part in the Handemade Holiday sponsored by Plain & Joyful Living. Last year I made so many of our holiday gifts and everyone really enjoyed them. Actually they enjoyed them more than I had ever remembered them enjoying presents. This year I'm fully committed to giving handmade gifts, whether handmade my me or someone else.
First project on my list is this knitted cowl. When I came back from Sweden, I had a lot of catching up to do with my blog reading. As I was reading Soulemama's blog, she mentioned this great new yarn company called Quince and Company. Their yarn is so incredibly soft and comes in a variety of colors and all of these colors come in a variety of yarn sizes.
I fell in love with this grey and used one of Quince and Company's patterns to put together this cowl.
I also knitted one for a special friend from my every growing yarn stash. There are a couple more patterns from Quince and Company that I would like to try. I just really love their yarn and their patterns.
