Cream and Sugar Cowl

For those of you who read both my blog and Alana's blog, you've probably already seen this:

G and I did photos for Alana's latest pattern, the Cream and Sugar Cowl. I was so excited when I cracked open the package and saw how beautiful it was! This is cowl heaven- loose, luxurious cables, and a one skein project that is perfect for some treasured sock yarn you've got squirrelled away in your stash.

I've got the perfect skein of yarn already picked out for this pretty little thing. And how perfect would this cowl be for gift knitting?!

I did see this on Alana's blog yesterday, IT and YOU look beautiful Julie. I love that it's knit with sock yarn. I can't wait to see what you use. I have some yarn I might be able to use for this too - what a great gift it would make. Love it.:)

I love this! I have the same yarn in the same color so I might be totally boring and just it with that! I was thinking of making a cowl of my own pattern so I might have to put this one on hold! Gorgeous pictures though!

Hello Julie,

thank you for becoming a reader of my blog! I'm quite proud of that!

I like your blog very much, you're such a good model for all those wonderful knitted things and the photos your husband takes are a real pleasure to view.

Alana's new pattern is great, I've downloaded it already.

And I'm thinking of writing my blog also in English so that you and my other English-speaking reader can also understand it.

Greetings from Germany
Betsy
