Cowls!

Finished a few Christmas at Sea neck cowls:

Used Wool-Ease (Lion Brand) on the left and Encore Plymouth on the right




Another Lion Brand Wool-Ease, different colorway

A friend saw the earlier cowls and asked if I could make her one in Seattle Seahawks colors. I found a bulky yarn at Hancock's Fabrics that had three colors that looked close.

Making things for Christmas at Sea

I don't remember how I heard about Christmas at Sea, but as soon as I did I knew I wanted to knit and crochet some things for this great organization. I already have some Plymouth Encore and Kraemer Perfection on hand, both washable wool blends. There was a sale at the Hancock's by my house and so I picked up a few skeins of Wool-Ease.

Not shown is the grey Encore
I worked on their cowl pattern and finished two, one in a navy & blue twist and the other in grey.




The cowl is an easy and quick pattern to knit up. You can find more information about the group here, as well as their free patterns:
