On and Off the Needles - Feb. 6, 2015

More progress was made on my Pacific blue socks.  I've finished the leg (longer than usual) and the heel is complete.  Now it's smooth sailing through the foot.

Off the needles is the Augustine Cowl.  I'm not sure why the pattern was for flat construction instead of in-the-round, but I followed her instructions since I'm not an advanced knitter yet.  This is my first knitted finish for 2015 (well almost, I still have to join the two sides, block and bury the ends.)

Augustine Cowl 
It can be worn with the points up around your face and neck or flipped the other way so they fall on your shoulders. The pattern and the two ways it is worn are on Ravelry here.  I know it's going to be really warm on those cold windy days that I know we are bound to have yet this winter.  Tomorrow though, it is going to be almost 60 degrees here after being 7 degrees 2 days ago.  What a roller coaster winter we have been having here in the Midwest.

There are lots of other pretty knitted items over at Judy's OTN here for your enjoyment.  

Now it's back to the quilting studio to finish a quilt and bust some of the stash. 


  1. Had to print that cowl pattern...... Thanks for sharing........

  2. I like the cowl so much I had to go download it. Hopefully you will see it sometime this spring on my needles.

  3. Pretty blue socks! and you have intrigued me with that cowl - I went and checked it out on Ravelry - I'd like to play with this pattern. Enjoy the warm weather while you can -- yesterday it was in the teens here - tomorrow up to 50 -- yeah -- next week back to winter - can't wait for Spring - happy knitting!

  4. I LOVE the color of your socks! And your cowl is adorable. When I am knitting again, I'll have to plan on making one of those.

  5. Love the colors of both projects. I have a real weakness for just about anything purple. Enjoy the warm days, I'm sure we'll be back to freezing before much longer. But I agree it's been a bit of a roller coaster this winter.
