I Made This!

February 7th, 2011 · 14 Comments

It is the Criss Cross Cowl crochet pattern by Caron.  I used Soft Mint as my main color and Spring Brook as my accent color.  This was super easy and very quick to make.  It took me a weekend of on and off working on it to complete.  I didn’t make it as large as the pattern called for.  I thought the size called for would be too much for myself or my daughter.  The yarn is really soft and was great to work with.

Here’s my sweet daughter modeling it!

Thank you all for the sweet emails and comments offering us support and a shoulder these past couple of months.  Things are looking more stable here now and I’m hoping for better and better days ahead.  Hugs to you!

    Love this. Love the colors. Maybe someday I’ll learn how to knit and can make myself something similar… someday… sigh…
