Season of the Cowl

Len and Bailey in her hometown of Wyoming.

This is my husband, Len, and his daughter, Bailey.   She is pregnant with her first, a boy named Henry.   I made her the red cabled baby blanket, as pictured in my last post.  I also made her a cowl to match.  Her cowl is the “GAP-tastic Cowl” which you can find on Ravelry.  It’s basically just a seed stitch pattern.  Both yarns are from Plymouth Yarn Co.  The baby blanket is Encore Chunky and the cowl is Baby Alpaca Grande.

Grey Cabled Baby Blanket with Goldendoodle pups.

This is one of the baby blankets I made in a different yarn that is the same as the red baby blanket in my previous post.  See, it’s super pretty in any yarn!  Our Goldendoodles are growing so fast.  They are adorable!

Back to the cowls….

Len is in Wyoming and I didn’t have anyone to help with pics.   You can still see the cuteness of the cowl.   I had some yarn left over so I made a hat to match.  I had to be creative because I had little of the cream left and more of the variegated color.  It’s not an exact match, but it still goes together.  I made the pompom with my hand.  No tools used at all.  (Big pat on my back here). The hat pattern is from the “Chunky Beanie” by NatHipKnits on Ravelry.

Max loves all my knits.  It’s so cute.  Len is retired and home all the time.  Max is used to having someone here.   He doesn’t like to be alone and he’s always with someone, regardless of what we are doing.   I was doing some chores the other day, in particular, laundry.  I was going from room to room putting away the laundry and when he would notice I had left the room, he would meow.  I would holler, “I’m in here Max.” and you could hear the frantic pitter patter of his paws racing to find me.  It was so funny.   We did this from room to room while doing my chores.  Cracked me up!

This is my daughter, Lindy.  This is several years ago.  I think she was 17 here.  She will be 21 this December.  She is wearing the “Drop Stitch Cowl” by Abi Gregorio.  She gets tons of compliments on this when she wears it.  I bought some super chunky yarn from Tuesday Morning for this.

I miss my man so much!  Eagerly awaiting his return home.
