I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I certainly did but these three day weekends always have a way of flying by, don't they? We capped ours off with a picnic lunch at the lake and a barbecued dinner. Thankfully we are still enjoying some summer weather here in the Pacific Northwest.
Even though I'm not yet ready to give up summer, I have started thinking about projects for the fall and even winter. I've started a couple of projects but haven't finished any of them yet, so I thought I'd share one work in progress with you.
I had pretty much completely taken a break from crocheting during the summer but now that colder months are right around the corner, I've started thinking about what I want to do with my stash of yarn. I decided to start out with a simple and relatively quick project - a cozy little cowl. I'm trying out different stitch combinations to see what kind of pattern I end up with. And I'm not following a pattern, which is how I prefer to crochet. I'm just making it up as I go, so it should be interesting to see what the completed project looks like.
Once I'm finished with this cowl, I'll show more pictures and provide a pattern as best I can, or at least a template for creating your own version if it's something you want to make yourself. This little cowl is so easy to make so don't worry if you're a beginner crocheter - this is totally doable!
