Is it still winter?

As much as I complain about the cold weather, I find comfort in racing home, changing into my fluffiest sweats and burying myself in some nice woolly yarn. Having just moved, I've unfortunately had less time burying myself in wool as I have... putting up towel racks for instance. (Why would they install one towel rack IN the shower and not on the wall? Endless amounts of questions about the mental stability of contractors and developers come to mind.)

But I have been able to sneak some time away from my new best friend, the cordless drill, to knit. And I was able to finally finish this beautiful design from Olga, the Cabled Cowl. It became a birthday present for my dear friend who lent me her car during our move.

It was perfect. I met up with my friend right before she was leaving for the snowy Midwest, and I hope she's putting it to good use!

Hi there! You have an adorable blog. I found it yesterday, purely by accident. I don't even remember in which site I found a link (I do remember that it was a knitting site). I decided to check it out and it brought me to your blog. I'm trying to learn how to knit by watching videos and reading tutorials online. I can't tell you how many times I've taken apart and started over with the same scarf. I haven't finished the first thing yet...lol. But I'm having a good time learning. I will be coming back to your blog often, as it seems we may have some common interests. I enjoy reading the blogs of creative people. Have a nice day'''
