I finally finished some stuff in February!  After completing five projects last month, I was definitely feeling like a slacker.

First, Branching Out from Knitty:

And then the drawstring cowl (sans drawstring) from Loop-d-Loop:

I've never made anything from that book, and picked out the cowl on a whim.  I like it more than I thought I would, once I figured out that it looks better with the neck rolled down a bit.

When I started the cowl (hours after finishing the scarf), my husband asked just how many neck accessories one person needs.  Has he learned nothing from living with a knitter?    Cheesy

i love the yarn for that scarf!

excuse me if it seems rude, but i'm curious, are those stars on your arms? i think i watched a show on television once about something that looks like that. again, if this seems rude, i will abruptly delete this comment.

The scarf yarn is Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes) one of my favorites.

Your question isnt rude at all!   Smiley  Youre right, they are stars; I had scarification done several years ago on my biceps and on my shoulders.  The design is cut in with a scalpel, and the resulting scar tissue creates the markings.  They end up looking like brandings, although no heat is used in the procedure.

Scarification isnt terribly common, so I get a lot of questions about it.  Thanks for asking!

i saw something on the Travel channel about it and this guy got this huge mural-thing on his legs. it was about horror movies. it was amazing!
