Array Cowl

I finally completed this cowl I've been knitting for far too long. I could tell about halfway in that I wasn't going to like how it ends but I kept on anyway. The yarn was so expensive, there are so many flaws, and I don't like how it fits. But oddly I don't regret it, and I'm glad I finished. Take that for whatever it could mean!

I'll probably make Ivy wear it on cold days.

Now I am casting on tiny sweaters for a tiny sweetheart.

I made the mistake of sharing my Pandora with Noah on his iPod and he deleted all of my stations! Like, years' worth! So I started over. I give a thumbs up or down like it's my job. Also I can't get enough of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and The Allman Brothers. Some things never change.

I just checked out Where'd You Go, Bernadette from the library and am reading Falling Leaves for book club. · I get to update my bios this week because of something truly exciting. · I heard from our realtor this afternoon and we're getting closer to a sale, much closer! · Both of our parents are coming here for Thanksgiving next week and I'm so excited to have a reason to buy new dishes and furniture and toast to our new life here. (And hopefully celebrate a sold home! I can feel it!) · I am kind of stupid excited to show them Chippy and the squirrels. · No matter what I want to always remember having us all here, what it was like when we had to make two house payments, and that we were okay. · Big thankful.


  1. - Last 2 lines of 2nd paragraph had me grinning.

    - I want to know the exciting update to your bio!!!

    - Fingers crossed about the house.

    - Miss you.

  2. Cannot wait for your bio update!

    Also, your thanksgiving sounds delightful!

    ps-I love the cowl. I am almost done with a crocheted is fun!

  3. Congrats on all of it... the new (!), the imperfect, and the reassurance. :)

  4. Oh man, I remember waiting for that house sale while making two payments! I'll keep my fingers AND toes crossed that it goes through! And yay for family coming to visit. That's gonna be so awesome. :)

  5. Sounds like it will be an amazing Thanksgiving. I've been thinking about picking up my knitting again. My favorite part of Winter. xo

  6. The suspense is killing me!
    And, that cowl is so sweet....I wish you could see the ridiculous red scarf I have been knitting Niklas for the last 3 months. He put his finger through the two spots I missed a loop and asked, "Is this where I put my fingers?"

    It would make you feel so much better:)

  7. The cowl is real. That's why I like it. I'm sure Ivy will look fab in it.

    AWEsome about the house sale! Good luck!
