Like a romp through your favorite vintage haunt my blog is stuffed with an eclectic mix of subjects. Vintage collections, writings, family photos and memories, daily devotion to living well in a world that requires us to recycle, edit and cherish our past and present day belongings. In talks with my dog Angie I'm aware of the basics of a simple code for life. Have respect,honor the past, protect the future.

Rust and Amber Sky Cowl
rust and amber sky cowl
I have had so much fun making cowls. They are fast and satisfying. This was an easy knit as I just CO using size 10 double pointed needles 80 stitches. after knitting a row I purled a couple of rows then I knit for 1/2 inch and started an eyelet row by pm and then k3 k2tog and yo all the way around to marker. I knit for a couple of inches and then did 4 rows of purl. Then I knit for a couple more inches and did the eyelet row again and knit a couple of rows...purled a couple of rows and loosely bound off the knitting. The fun part was weaving a satin ribbon into the eyelet rows and then dotting the center purl rows with glass beads. Fun!
