for me. I knit for everyone else and, no, I haven't started on that second sock for Phil yet.
I'm looking for a project something between a shawl and a cowl which I can wear on the shoulders and possibly to the elbows to keep warm.
I've found a lot of ideas via Ravelry and Pinterest. Here are a few:
Shoulder Warmer from Garn Studios.
Luna by Louisa Harding which requires me to buy a book to get the pattern.
Amelia shoulder warmer pattern by DROPS Design. Free pattern.
Warm Hug capelet by Bella Wool. $5 pattern.
Zuzus Petals by Carina Spencer. $5 pattern. Very lovely!
Lace Shoulder Wrap also by DROPS Design. Also free! I'm in love with this pattern.
Trying to decide between Amelia and Lace Shoulder Wrap. I want to use some natural wool I've had for years. It's from a local supplier (Sand Hill Berries in Mount Pleasant). I remember buying a large brown paper bag of yarn from this woman for something like $15. I used two skeins to make a baby hooded sweater for Phil's nephew who is now 18. Wow, the skeins of yarn are pretty old.
