Beautiful!

Funny, I bought a ball of Noro sock yarn and hated the project I was working on...the original of your pattern calls for this yarn!!!  I hated the thought of Noro sitting in my basket... Cheesy

I love the big old buttons, too!  The stitches are gorgeous in the solid!

That is a really lovely cowl -- I love the pattern (and the buttons!)
This time of year, I've got several cowls and short scarves going, since they work up so fast.

I finished this over the weekend -- felted wool with rows of non-felted yarn and slipped stitches.  I want to try it again with more short rows to make a more exaggerated lines, but I rather like how it turned out.

I think it is so cute!  I would love to try some mixing of feltable and non-feltable yarns like that...does it fit snug?

It's a bit loose on my tiny head, but fit my coworker tight enough to not blow off, and loose enough to not plaster the hair down.

I've had fun playing with different yarns and patterns -- despite being the last knitter on the continent to have discovered felting!

Especially since I've been sucked into the Game of Thrones series - I wish there was a way I could read and craft at the same time.

So said I - until I discovered audio books Cheesy

And yes, as a knitter of one year, and crocheter of several, crocheting is easier to learn. Always - by "knit English" do you mean Continental? I recently taught my mother (77yo) to knit Continental like I do, and she's been knitting since she was a kid. She was delighted "It's so easy and quick - just like crocheting!"

sheepBlue love the cowl! I've often looked at that pattern, but I don't need another scarf really. I never thought of making it a cowl! Your's looks lovely and cosy!

I am sewing up a tardis, and then I shall have to take photos of my last few days of work - said Tardis, two Daleks, and 4 fridge magnets for teacher gifts.

Continental is holding the yarn in the left hand--very fast!  English is holding the yarn in the right and then wrapping around...I don't wrap at all when I knit...I just grab it out of the left hand...I knit super fast...but crochet faster! Cheesy

I think there are different names for it, but I was taught that it was called English knitting.

OMG, sheepBlue. I need one of those ornaments!!! Is crochet hard to learn, lol? I'd do it just for these! Love, love, love!!

Omg, me too!  Those are awesome sheep!  I've always wanted to learn how to crochet.  I knitted a scarf once and then gave up on knitting and starting doing loom knitting instead. 

Love the cowl, too, sheep!  Yay buttons from STS!  I will hopefully have my ceramic ones for the next round.  I didn't have them up long enough for people to claim, I don't think.  I really want to seem them on some knitted lovilies!

love the hat, yofi!  Very very pretty!

Oh, I have my Ho3 stuff to share with you all!  Yay!  Here's what I sent to loves2experiment!


Mixed media Ho birds made from paperclay and covered in acrylic paint and other assortments.  I even made their little hats and the presents.  The hats make me giggle.  And I'm not just saying that, I was actually giggling while I was making them and putting them on the birds.  ^_^


Framed watercolor art using masking fluid and then I added white gel pen for swirls.


And a pillow!  I stenciled the Hos on the burlap using a freezer paper stencil and fabric paint.

Oh and I sent these to tapestrymlp in the the STS:

As an Englishwoman I knit English (of course  Wink) can't get to grips with the yarn being in my left hand and to slow me down further I'm a "thrower" instead of a "picker"  Roll Eyes I knit the same as I did as a 9 yr old just bigger things now  Cheesy

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best
