Believe it or not, I still knit!
I picked up a kit for Spiraluscious from Dye Dreams during Sock Summit '09 (rav link). My intention was to have it finished in time for my mom's birthday. Well, then my paternal grandmother passed away, and that threw everything off a bit.
Anyway, I got this finished and off to my mom last week. She received it over the weekend and just loves it! It was a pleasure to knit. Beautiful yarn, and a simple but lovely lace pattern. This will definitely provide a bit of warmth for mom.
On a side note, my dad saw this and wants one of his one! He wanted to try on mom's, and she kept telling him 'no' - quite hilarious that they were fighting over it. I guess I will be adding a (more masculine) cowl to my Christmas-knitting-list for dad. Has anyone made a manly cowl? Any suggestions out there?
