Actual Knitting Content. With Pictures.

School is crazy busy right now, and despite the fact that Steve and I should be finishing up some house repairs, we took a weekend trip with Stephanie to visit some family in Maryland and New Jersey this weekend. It was great fun as always, plus I got another Honey Cowl knitted up!

Steve's brother, Steve, and Jan, a lifelong friend of Steve's mom.

The latest Honey Cowl, knit with MadTosh, in the Spectrum color way.

The Darkside Cowl, using Malabrigo Rios. This is the first sixteen row repeat, very easy to knit, but without being a boring knit. I worked on it on my day off yesterday, while watching back-to-back episodes of The Barefoot Contessa.

While I can't have Ina's sweet life, I can garnish an otherwise boring meal of pigeon peas and rice with a sprinkling of scallions and a wedge of lime. I need to watch her show more often!

By the way, we actually had a few snow flurries this evening! Very exciting for our area! It's stopped now, but the wind is super blustery. Hope it's a harbinger of a snowy winter!



  1. I love the Honey Cowl pattern! And now that I've seen yours, I may have to try the Dark Side pattern ...

    I join you in hoping it's a snowy winter!

  2. Love all your Honey Cowls. I made one and have a second one in the hopper. It is a great pattern!

  3. You can have ALL of our snow in NEO. Including the two inches we've already had. Ugh.
