penelope's birthday cowl


A Birthday Cowl quickly came off the needles this morning, so came said photoshoot. It started with me outside alone but then my little one pointed and shouted "nelope"! What? Ah. Clever kid.


Then we all had a crack as "Penelope" posers. We recently saw this quirky movie together. I enjoyed it but I think the critics were kind of hard on it. The underlying meaning was good - very fairy tale.

Now the cowl shall go to the blocking board and then onto the holiday gift pile, if I can bear it. What a fun, fast project. In Malabrigo (and I have almost half of a skein to spare), divine!

I'm just about to cast that same cowl (different yarn used) off my needles! It's a disease. I love that pattern, quick, easy, and beautiful!
And Malabrigo - how can you bear to part with it!
