Warm Winter Woolies

"On the theory that if I keep my thoughts firmly fixed on winter and warm woolies spring will be a pleasant surprise."  Elizabeth Zimmermann, Knitter's Almanac.

Luke has been sick since Saturday, so we've been snuggling on the couch.  He doesn't want to be held, but he won't let me leave his side.  With a head on my lap and needles in my hands, I've finished lots and lots of knitting.  

I made up this cowl on a whim yesterday.  It's for the boys, because they keep stealing my Bandana Cowl made of the same hand spun angora yarn.  Who can blame them, angora is insanely soft and warm.  {Ravelry notes here.}

The Child's Cowl is nicely textured, unisex cowl fitting just about any child's neck.  Cole claimed it immediately after I darned in the last end.  Pulling it up over his head as a headband, he ran off with it, smiling.  Hopefully, I have enough of this yarn left to make another for Luke!

A snow storm came through last night too, so it was just as well that we weren't able to go anywhere.  I really do love waking up to a fresh blanket of sparkling white powder.  Maybe spring will show up next week, instead.

Goining in with Ginny.
