{Yarn Along}






In between blocks for the farm mat (that I still have no pictures of) I managed to crank out these cowls. The top one is a gift my swap partner in my little homeschooling mom's group. She also happens to be one of my new neighbors so it's been fun putting together a small pile of goodies for her. The cowl was quick and easy and I will be making more for sure! I'm sad to see this one go, but I certainly have more yarn -I can always make one for myself! The yarn is some delicious Brambleberry Organic Merino Bulky, always such a joy to work with! {Details at Ravelry}

The second cowl is a family gift although I wont say who, just in case she stops by here! It is knit in Malabrigo Rasta on size *19* needles!! It took practically no time and is like a cloud. {Details on Ravelry} I have another skein of rasta waiting for a few spare minutes for myself...! I'm currently reading "The Introvert's Way" by Sophia Dembling. It's a quick read, and she has a light and engaging writing style and I would definitely recommend it. I've found myself laughing several times and I'm going to make my oh-so-not-introverted hubby read it while he's home (NEXT WEEK!!)...I think it might give him some insight...and perhaps convince him that I'm not the only one of my kind. *wink* 

I'm joining the lovely Ginny for the Yarn Along today, for lots more inspiration go check out the link up!

  5. Oh, that book has been on my list. I too am an introvert, but I am married to an introvert as well. It can be crazy at times. Love those cowls. I have been mulling over what I want to give my swap partner in our homeschooling swap as well. She is a new knitter, so I am a bit puzzled. So glad your husband will be home next week as well. Enjoy your time.

  6. That cowl looks so cozy! Perfect for a winter day. Curious about your book, my husband and I are both introverts. We often joke about our hermit-like nature. :)

  10. I love quick and easy knits. They are so good for the soul because you get to see progress for your hard work. Sometimes I wish all projects could be knit on size 19 needles.

  11. Lovely!! I did zip, zero, zilch as far as handmade gifts this year and I am just trying to happily wrap what I did buy and send it out before it's too late! I have plans for next year and cowls are definitely on my list!! I'll have to check out that book, I too am an introvert and at times I feel like I am weird.

  12. Oh my goodness, seed stitch?! You are my hero. I love how seed stitch looks, but can never stick with it! Both cowls are gorgeous and I'm definitely adding that book to my (and my extrovert husband's) reading list. :)

  14. Hello Mackenzie! Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. It is very satisfying to meet new friends. My birth state is Virginia and those mountains are my favorite ones by far.
    I love the mannner in which younger women are continuing to live purposeful rich lives with their families as the center.
    Your knitting is wonderful. If we lived closer by I would invite you over to knit for a spell, and I have older daughters that could watch your younger ones!

  15. I did a blanket in seed stitch once and really liked it. I may have to try a cowl like these. Thanks for stopping by One Acre Follies! I've enjoyed looking through yours and am going to get my cold and flu season stuff together as soon as we get back from our Christmas trip. Thanks for all of the great tips!
