Wednesday I have a date with my friend Meghan (Zoe & Harold also
keep us company too.) We knit and watch the Sopranos. Meghan pretty much
rules. I'll be sure to post more about our knitting adventures.
Last weekend, I made a cowl for
the most adorable kid in Monroeville, OH. This project was super easy, I
used a circular needed and just did a basic seed stitch and twisted the
yarn. I'm so happy the cowl actually fit her!

Over the last couple weeks, I've been trying to make the Big Herringbone Cowl. I
really really like this stitch, but it drives me crazy how the edges of
the cowl roll up. I think this is going to be great to wear when it
really cold outside, which will be perfect for living in Ohio. I also
need to thank Meghan for helping me figure out this pattern.
Meghan, is a great knitting partner!

less than 2 weeks I managed to finish the 2nd half of the baby blanket I
started earlier this summer. I'm happy to report that after 41,055
stitches the baby blanket has finally been finished. Now Baby Whalen
just needs to hurry up and get here!
