Lacy Cowl

When I subscribed to Rowan wools Magazine for one year it proved to be a great bargain as the joining fee cost less than the four magazines and the 6 balls of Rowan pure wool 4ply and the free patterns for two scarves that I received.  It took me a long tome to get around to knitting the free wool but eventually this was the result.  I didn't finish the scarf off as required by the pattern but I grafted the two ends together to form a circular scarf with no seam.

Isla's Blanket

We've had a new addition to our family:  Isla Belle born three weeks ago.  As has now become a tradition in the family, I knit each new baby its own little blanket.  (in fairness it hasn't always been knitted).  This was a pattern I gleaned from the internet published by Kraemer Yarns.  The pattern is called Lots of Love - Grandma's Afghan by Nancy Harper.  It was very easy and quick to knit using some of my stash: Sirdar Snuggly DK
