I made this cowl as a graduation gift for my cousin, and cant wait to hear what she thinks!
This is fairy easy to knit – no fancy stitches, but the result is very pretty!
My mother started keeping hens so that she could have fresh eggs every day… So for Christmas last year, I made her an Egg Gathering Apron!
I picked up this pattern, and lovely hand-spun wool, from the Handspinner Having Fun (on the Isle of Skye, Scotland) when on a geology break – I ended up not actively taking part in as my broken foot complained and swelled… what else could I do, but invest in some needles and wool and start knitting?!

This jacket is my favourite knitting creation so far – and I wear it loads!
