I’ve decided to try something new this winter, to go along with my annual pair of knitted hand warmers. Inspired by Lies, I’m knitting a Honey Cowl and, just to keep life exciting, it uses a circular needle. Which is turning out to be more straightforward than I imagined. The cowl is being toted to various sports practices and I’m hoping to have it finished by the time a big hockey tournament rolls around next weekend. Eleven inches of knitting or the end of the ball of yarn… whichever comes first.
We knew the winter was going to be busy but were unprepared for just how. Jono in particular is playing football (2 practices and a Saturday game) and hockey ( 2 practices and 2 weekend games) and now, after an extensive trial period, a place in the Canterbury U15 hockey team which adds another practice and several tournaments, the most exciting of which is in Hamilton in July. The Honey Cowl will be well-travelled by the time this winter is over.
