Eclipse hat....

My daughter finished her first hat a few months ago, before she went back to school, and now it's Christmas break, and she's got the bug again for knitting.. She bought these 2 skeins from Michaels and started her knitting again,....I love these colors, a rich navy and white Bernat Alpaca hat.  So soft and lovely!  I can't wait til it's done!

and so we knit on!  This is what I did, I used 2 1/4 skeins of Cozy wool by Loops & Thread to make this GAPTASTIC cowl! I love it!  It is a new project for my Michaels Discover Knit program! I am also working on another cowl that I made up for my daughter which I still have to look for buttons...!

Fair Isle Cowl

 Happily knitting I am on my way to finishing this baby....ah, fair isle cowl.  It is turning out really lovely, but ...of course, when you do this at night and 1/2 asleep..errors are made
 So, while I am sitting at the Los Al hospital area (it had a nice coffee shop) which..sadly, I forgot my wallet and $$, so I sat on the cold bench and table..and then.. I realized....I MADE A MISTAKE!
 So, pulling out my stitch markers,  I marked the last row of correct-ness...ugh. Lots of rows to pull out!
 to illuminate my ocd....again, maybe you can see the error....
This is what it is SUPPOSED to look like!!!!!!!
