Hey all! Sorry I missed last week, but I have a wonderful book for you this week. It just arrived in my mail box and I am already enamored with it. I am sure that you will be too.
Cowl Girls: The Neck's Big Thing to Knit contains 41 designs and I want to make 40 of them! Cowls, gaiters, balaclavas, and more grace the pages of this incredible text. Also you will find tips on how to convert from B&F knitting (back and forth) to ITR knitting (in the round) in case you have a favorite stitch pattern that you would like to incorporate into a cowl.
I must admit that I am partial to cowls and gaiters. I much prefer them over scarves. Scarves dangle in my way, get caught on things or have to be repositioned over and over. My cowls and gaiters stay right were I put them and provide amazing warmth which is very important during a Maine winter. Equally important is that they are small to mid size projects that work up quickly, so if you need a last minute gift that will really be appreciated, think COWL.
With all this going for it, I imagine you have already clicked the Amazon link to get a copy for yourself. Enjoy!
