hey, I knit something!

Two things, actually.

I’ve seen so many of these lovely Honey Cowls online – it was about time I made one!

It’s a wonderful free pattern from Madelinetosh, found here, or here on Ravelry.

It was fun to knit, and  a great project to get me back into knitting. I used this lovely Swans Island yarn, purchased locally at Nido.

And then I had even more fun letting Max model it for me. He looks pretty cute in an oversized cowl.

My next project was a winter hat for Max. I made one for him recently, but failed to accurately calculate his head size. This one is the Swirl Hat pattern – quick and easy!

Let’s hope he’ll keep it on once we return home to winter!

    Beautiful knits! I’m now convinced that all babies should always wear big, oversized cowls. Adorable!

    Both of your knits are gorgeous, and the baby’s not bad either (he does look fabulous in the purple cowl!!). Great work!

    Wow, great job Ashley- they look gorgeous!! And that Max- oh my- is he ever getting big and still a living doll- it’s okay to call him a doll isn’t it? :) He’s a cutie and going to break some hearts when he grows up! I haven’t knitted in quite awhile now but this cold weather moving in is sure pushing the hibernation mode in gear!!:) I should give it a try!! Thanks for sharing!!

    I am just barely learning how to knit and LOVE THIS HAT! I might have to try making one for each of my wee little ones.

    BTW, I love your blog! I found it not too long ago and LOVE your style of quilting!

    Beautiful! Love the yarn you chose – the colours…

    I haven’t finished mine yet, but maybe I’ll have to get cracking on it again.

    I think you did a great job. These are fabulous. I have tried knitting, but I just never fell in love with it, but I admire everyone who has the patience for it. That cowl is a good idea to use in place of a scarf that would come undone all the time. Lovely color too!

    Oh my! Both of these projects turned out so great! I love the colors as well. I would love to make both of these projects.

    I am actually in the middle of (re)making that hat for my niece. You did not miscalculate the head size; the pattern is flawed. I’d say the pattern is accurate for the listed head circumference, but is way off for what ages are associated with those.
