Finished Object Friday (No. 5 - I think)

Good Friday all and as promised here are my Finished Objets D'Art (ok I'm feeling Frenchy & pretentious - well it is Friday...)

Firstly my son's cowl and actually my first attempt at knitting a cowl:

The design is Neckwarmer #1979, by Bernat and I used Wendy Mode DK. it was a nice simple knit in the round (I made it slightly longer and wider so that he could use it as a snood if he wanted to). My son is loving it at the moment. I think he particularly likes the fact that he can tighten it around his neck (I actual worked out the toggle, so proud of myself), when the weather gets nippy (which it did yesterday, boy was it cold!!).

Second is my Stockholm Scarf. Lurve......this. Oh my Lord, it is the warmest thing ever.......:

Knitted this with Rowan's Cashsoft DK, so soft, so squidgy, so warm!!!  Wore it for the first time yesterday and I have fought people who wanted to take it of my body, who stole it from the back of my chair and who put it their bags (can you believe it...???!!!).  The only thing is that it didn't like my coat and kind of "shed" on it, as you can see from the photo but that's OK, I'm getting a new coat anyway!!! (an excuse for Mr H methinks..)

Anyway, I'm off now got another cowl to finish and that lace to do...

For more FO Objets D' here:



  1. The cowl and scarf are fantastic!

  2. The toggle think to tighten the cowl is a magical idea. And it's very masculine for a cowl - love that!
