Pink Hot flash cowl

I am supposed to be working on my big projects but this just slipped in there.  You know how that goes.
 This was made with Patons Silenzio chunky, a wool, alpaca, acrylic mix.  Which means when I wear it I'll be sweating and scratching at the same time.  It doesn't get REALLY cold here in Northern Cal., scarves and cowls are more of a fashion statement than a necessity.  I've never made a cowl nor worn one so I wanted to try it.  The pattern is Convertible Cowl found here.  It can be made deeper, to reach up and over your head, but around my neck is enough, thank you very much.  In fact, I can't wait to wear this and have one of my mind numbing, make-up melting hot flashes that seem to be the norm lately.  It will probably happen while standing in line at the post office or Target and I will have to start stripping in public.  At least it's easy to whip on and off.  On second thought, maybe I should just give it as a present.  I feel hot just looking at it.
Pretty color eh?


  1. Beautiful colour!
    Hope you will have at least a few cold days so you can wear it often.

  2. Hi Lynne! Thank you for your visit :) I've been away for a few days but will catch up with my reading / blogging soon :)

  3. Oooh, pretty! I hope you get some lovely, chilly fall days soon, so you can wear it. :)

  4. Oh my ... the quilt is UTTERLY sweet!!!! It reminds me of Abigail's first quilt ... hand embroidered baby animal blocks (lovingly stitched by dear spinster aunt) alternated with sweet calico print blocks. =) =) Me thinks you need to start a Grand Baby Hope Chest.


You guys are awesome! Thank you for the comments!
