Finished Cool Weather Goodies

designed by

It was my very first time 808 yards was used in one project.
Wowzerrs ! ! ! ! 

I love the way it looks against my Salsa Red car.

Just so you can get an idea how big an 808-yard shawl can get


I like to keep my ears warm when that North Wind blows
So, I knit this

and then
just because I can
I knit this Cowl

This pattern is in
Wendy D Johnson's newest book
from the same book

Both the Hurricane Hat and Elizabeth's cowl
were knit from
kettle-dyed 100% Merino Wool

I notice that there's a big color difference in
these photos
and will not even attempt to correct it at this point.
I want to get this posted . . NOW!



  1. I agree that the shawl looks great on your car, however I like it better on the maker. Hugs

  2. OOOO - is that you? I love the silvery hair!!

    Love all your woolies too, although I expect it's still pretty hot there!

  3. It is so pretty and that's a lot of yarn! Goodness! A salsa red car huh? I bet it looks good on you!
    I am linking to you tomorrow if that's not a problem. I am loving my book and need to knit faster so I can cast on one of the projects! Love to you! xx

  4. Oh, Gerry!!!! I am speechless!!!
    The shawl is a masterpiece, and I love your winter warmers.
    You're ready for cold weather!

  5. What a fabulous job!! Love all of your projects!

  6. The shawl is gorgeous and I love the lace pattern in the cowl.

    The spiral pattern on the Hurricane Hat reminds me of the Vanilla Twist Hat by Jaala Spiro. I've made a few of those.

  7. Everything looks great (so glad I saw them "in person" last week). You put me to shame; I've only finished on pair of sock in ages.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog and introducting yourself. I just recently met Brenda and she helped me out with my blog header. I'm amazed at your knitting skills! I recall trying to crochet when I was younger, but it never took off. It's amazing to see so much talent out here in blogland.

  9. Love the all your little projects ! ! ! !
    They look GREAT! !

  10. I'm enthralled with that cowl! Delicious! Knitting is my 2012 resolution. Crochet was the 2011 resolution; knitting is next!
