Can't. Stop. Patricia.

I have to admit that I'm a knitting fool for this pattern. After I finished the first one, I immediately cast on a second. My mom deserves a wee gift every now and then right? And I have the yarn in stash. So, here's a shot of her new navy blue cowl. That should warm her up in the long, cold, dark English winter.Oh, and what's this next one? Por moi? Well, I was sick of the dangly scarf, so what else was a girl to do?! Another raid on the stash and 24 hours later, my neck's as warm as anyone else's.Another excuse. I needed something to go with this hat I knit at the beginning of December. I needed a super quick knit one Saturday afternoon. I was going to my first ever (American) football game, here in Charlotte. Virginia Tech vs, erm, who cares? Anyway, it was cold. This pattern did the job - a mere two hours total.Not a perfect yarn match, but don't they look good together?

You're gonna get me to knit one of those cowls aren't you? Must resist. Too much to knit on the list already.

Ooo! I really like that hat! I'm normally not fond of chunky yarns--but in that white and in that pattern--I love!
