GAP-tastic

I'm finished and I love it. Just in time for the colder weather that is supposed to be coming.

Pattern: GAP-tastic (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: 3 skeins of madelinetosh home in the new colour undergrowth
Needles: 9mm, 80cm circular
The GAP-tastic cowl is an easy knit you’ll want to make again and again! This fun cowl is a great beginner project for new knitters who want to practice knitting and purling, and it’s a fantastic mindless knit for experienced knitters. Either way, the GAP-tastic is a classic accessory that you’ll wear all of the time. It makes a great gift, too.

Mr. Canada Post brought in a box from Mountain Colors this morning. It was full of Twizzlefoot.


There are colours that we haven't carried before and the colours that we used in our shawl.

Pattern: Kaersta Shawl (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Twizzlefoot - 2 skeins of Summerdale, 1 skein of Poppy Trail

There was enough yarn left over from the shawl that Lynn is making a pair of socks. The first sock is blue with an orange cuff, heel and toes and the other sock is opposite. We didn't think there was enough to do two blue socks. Reversing the colours makes a cool pair of socks and helps with second sock syndrome. It feels like you are starting a new pair. :)

Now to pick out some yarn to take home. One project done means that I get to start something new tonight.
