Quick Knits!

Today I knit this cowl. I cast on this morning and I was done before the football even started--and I took time out to move everything out of the kitchen cabinets (yes! we are getting new counters).

A couple of years ago, my mother bought this superchunky yarn when we were at a yarn shop in Portland, ME. She wanted a sweater (unlikely!) then she said I should knit "whatever." Last year she told me she wanted a cowl. A few weeks ago, I found this very simple cowl for a chunky yarn. I think I might have to block it, but it came out pretty well. And my mother can have it next Saturday. She's coming down early for Thanksgiving. It's good, but kind of bad because I was going to go to the beading store next Sunday to fix a bunch of bracelets my mother asked me to repair. (Definitely the downside of taking all those jewelry making-classes.) Maybe the cowl will distract her...

That looks really cozy! I should look for something like that - I hate futzing with scarves.
