The New Cool Cowl

I’ve learned to knit and you know what that means…..more cool patterns!  On the trip to Raleigh last week I was with two knitters and we decided to make this cool looking cowl so we pick up some nubby yarn.  When I got home I got started.  I had a pattern and everything….but I don’t know enough yet about knitting so on row 3 of the pattern I went rogue.  Since I didn’t know what I was doing I just made it up…..and I  like  how it turned out.  Then I made a crocheted version(pictured on the right).  I think we’ll have a class in these in January.  Get your hooks or needles ready!

While these animals await adoption, the blankets provide a comfortable bed year-round. When they are adopted, their blanket goes with them, providing something familiar as they adjust to their “forever family.”

Isn’t this a terrific idea?  So I contacted Linda, the founder, and hooked her up with our shelter and now they are participating.  Of course, I have gobs of yarn pieces that I have started making some blankets out of for them but I thought others might like to know about them because they accept all sorts of blankets, not  just crochet.  Be sure to click on the link and read more about this worthwhile organization.  And if you crochet or knit or even if you like to make the fleece knotted blankets, keep them in mind.
