Back to my Roots

And I don't mean the dark ones on my head. This blog began as a knitting blog and that's what today's post is about. This is the GAP-tastic Cowl by Jen Geigley. This is a free Ravelry download.
Ignore the cleaning clothes sweats please, I did not dress up for you, I am sorry. See how long and lovely? A great infinity scarf/cowl. Love it! And DN1 loved it. I knit it for her. I tried a pattern last year that was a disaster. This one is scrumptious. And the yarn, oh the yarn. It is Malabrigo Pearl (3 years old) doubled, knit on 9mm circulars. (Wish I ordered from Jimmy Beans, I paid waaaay more than that!)
If you are looking for one of these patterns, it is quick, simple and lovely. Really, give it a try. Below is my gorgeous eldest wearing GAP-tastic. She asked me to deliver it to her at work. So like a good mum, I did.
I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! And I am planning on posting a few pics of the most gorgeous Christmassy things I received. Somewhere, there is a Cath Kidston stockist with very little stock!
much love

I made 2 Gap-tastic cowls this year...they turned out so great! I love that pattern! Yours is lovey, I really do like seeing the texture in the white. Very nice! =_)

Thank you for passing along this deceptively simple pattern. The yarn that you chose really made it into something very special.

Happy New Year, and happy knitting to you!
