Knitting: Garter & Seed Stitch Cowl

A month ago, my MIL asked me to knit her a cowl.   There was no rush... just whenever I could find the time.  Then last week, one of my best gal pals invited me to a weekend up north to do nothing. And nothing is what we did. We slept. We ate. We watched TV.  I read a book.  I knitted a cowl!

There's a lot of joy in doing absolutely nothing.   It was such a nice and lazy weekend.  I brought up my needles and some yarn so I could knit a bit while we lounged.  My gal pal is great... she is used to me doing my crafty stuff and didn't mind that I totally geeked it out while we watched TV.

This was my knitting spot.

This was the view that constantly distracted me.

It took very little time to finish.

As for the details...  I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Wheat.  It took about 1.5 skeins using size 13 circular needles.

Here's me trying it on for size.  I just gave it to my MIL this past weekend but she probably won't be able to use it this year as it's gotten too warm for cowls.  However, she'll be ready for next winter.

While I was gone, the kids tried to enjoy whatever snow was left on the hills and in our backyard.

The snow is gone now and it's rainy... gotta love the promise of springtime!
