Never Not Knitting

This cowl knits up lightning fast and so incredibly warm. It can be styled differently for a variety of looks. This cowl was inspired by one of my favorite coastal walking trails, the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk in Cambria. It is always so windy and cold here. I need a cowl like this to keep warm! One of my favorite things about this cowl is the way you can accessorize it. There are many great versions of the cowl on Ravelry with buttons of all sorts. I thought that this version was quite nice. Aren't these buttons pretty? I also really enjoyed this version from Maya. If you are looking for a quick last minute hand-knit gift.

Free Pattern: Double Dayflower Scarf

I was in awe of those knitters who could do lace and would browse the knitting forums and lurk in every thread were lace was discussed. One day, I stumbled across a lace thread over at The knitters were discussing a lace pattern called "Dayflower" and one knitter in particular wanted to double this pattern but did know how to. Other knitters came to the rescue and at the end of the thread somebody wrote out the whole 16 row repeat pattern and doubled it! I immediately copied the pattern and stared at it for many days. There are knit two together (k2tog), slip slip knit (ssk), purl two together through backloop (p2tog tbl) and purl 3 together through back loop (p3tog tbl) and my word was I intimidated!
