Winter Warmers.

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.

  1. What a busy schedule – I find it hard enough keeping up with a couple of weekly activities each! Look forward to seeing your finished cowl. I too have made up a work bag – hand pieced hexagons so I’m in for the long haul!! x

  2. Just to let you know there’s a little award waiting for you over on my blog. Please don’t feel you have to do it but would love to know 10 more things about you and maybe find some new reading in the process! Hope you’re having a great weekend. x

    That cowl is a lovely pattern, and is a great colour. I understand it’s cold down South – wrap up warm!
