I've been wanting to knit the Snuggle Down Cowl ever since it was released but wasn't sure what yarn to use, the pattern suggestion is one strand of 4ply held together with mohair, (or similar) but looking through finished items I noticed a couple knitted in James C. Brett Driftwood DK, I had a ball of that tucked away so decided to make use of it.
I love the way it knitted up , and it's perfect tucked inside a jacket. The yarn is so soft you don't even know it's there, I would definitely knit this pattern again, it was a simple repeat, easy to memorise and knit up in no time at all. Now all I need is some weather cold enough for me to wear it!
The shade is DW01 and the Snuggle Down Cowl pattern can be found on Ravelry, (paid for pattern)
I had a lovely quiet weekend, I was going to go out on Saturday but changed my mind and instead I pottered around the house. I watched two of my DVD's over the weekend and I had a lazy Monday watching the third one.
Alfie and Sex And The City I hadn't seen previously but really enjoyed them, I think everyone has seen Forrest Gump but I'd forgotten what a great film it is, thoroughly enjoyed it all over again, and Tom Hanks looks so young, lol
They were a great buy at three for £1, they have now gone into the charity bag for someone else to enjoy. I will be on the look out for others when I go into town next.
The de-cluttering is continuing, the loft threw up a big box of photos that I have been slowly going through, bringing back some lovely memories. I don't want to put these back up the loft so they are sitting in piles on the dining table waiting to be put in albums. There is one more box up the loft to go through and then that can be crossed off my list.
Three wordrobes have been sorted and rearanged, it's evident that we have too many clothes! I did donate a bag full to charity, so that's cleared a bit of space but I'm always reluctant to get rid of clothes, other items, If they are not used, I have no problem with, but clothes I seem to hang on to for some reason.
What do you hang on to that you should clear out?
