I'm 14 inches into the cowl, which needs to be about 25 to 27 inches. I take frequent breaks because seed is so boring for me.
As a reward, I might make something fun next...maybe a pair of slippers, or another pair of socks, or one of those cowls from the Knitspot club. I have some Tosh Vintage that I want to use, so maybe if I make the smallest version in a bigger yarn it will be okay.
The first pattern is buttoned, but I may try to engineer it to be seamed. I'm always afraid of buttons by my hair.
I also would like to get my cowl pattern up, but I don't know where I put the picture of the cowl that I took! I've been using it every day at the bus stop, and it actually works. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to the yarn, but right now I don't have anything else to go in its place. I love the color, so maybe that's why I'm still wearing it :)
My mom is coming over today to stay with us through Friday - it will be easier than trying to transport a bunch of food to our house on Wednesday. However, this means that the whole week will be a houseguest week, and next week we'll have DP's family over, so that will be another houseguest week as well. Eek!
