I had a few days of relaxation at my friend’s house in PA. My view from the window wasThe white “lines” in the mountains are the ski-slopes and it was a joy waking up to this every morning I was out there. The last four days have been the most I’ve ever slept and relaxed with absolutely no concept of time since Christmas 2006. I’m blessed to have a bff who can allow me to breathe in her house and with this breathing came what I call “Cowlmania”. 😀
In three days, I finished a double crochet cowl from the Lion-Brand website and started the Dolores Park one that I previously blogged about here. Yes … stash diving for the yarn for this project turned up a winner but more about that next week 😛
To say that I’ve been a busy little bee is an understatement, so I’ll just let the pictures do the “tawking”. 😀

And in progress Dolores Park Cowl (WIP) in hard to photograph red/orange:
This is almost done, will be by next F.O Friday so I’ll give more details on the project then.
Needless to say, I’m very excited with my crochet progress. I know I have a long way to go but I feel great knowing that I’ve completed an entire project in less than a week after learning!!!! 😀 The crochet cowl was a pretty elementary project and even for a beginner like me, I finished this project in a little more than an hour. The pattern link is here.
I’m using the crochet cowl F.O as my project for Tami’s F.O Friday Linky party … hop over there to see some other great projects from the participating crafters.
Making something fun and fashionable so quickly after learning how is awesome! You have a very bright crocheting future ahead o fyoU!
Thank you so much for that compliment. It means a lot coming from a guru like you. 😳
Love your cowls! You are doing awesome with crocheting!
Love the view and kudos to bff’s!
Thanks so much Isa!!!! I can’t wait to get started again. 🙂
You’re absolutely right … bff’s ROCK!!!! I don’t know what I’d do without her. ❤
That cowl looks awesome (and I can’t wait to see the red/orange one finished, too, what a great colour)—such fun, cozy-looking yarn, and your stitching is really neat and lovely. I’m glad you’re getting more comfortable with crochet. 😀
Thanks so much Kathleen. I’ve enjoyed making both cowls. And the crochet … I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying it!!!! 😀
Thanks guys!!! I am really proud of it!!! Now on to my next project …. 😀
