Craft On - It's Finally Finished!!!

Linking with Nicole at Frontier Dreams and her Crafting On blog hop.

It has been a dark and stormy morning folks, and I wished that meant that we were actually getting some of the rain that is surrounding us, or that it was going to cool off some, but no. It only means that it is a really crappy day for taking pictures!! :) So these aren't going to be real great, but I didn't want to wait any longer to post my latest knitty finish...
Tried the first photo in the camper since it has lots of windows.
This is Tidal Sands Cowl by Anne Hanson. I knit it in Knit Picks's Stroll Tweed (65% Merino, 25% Nylon, 10% Donegal Tweed) in the Oyster Heather colorway. This yarn was so nice to knit with. It is super soft and I'm really loving the tweed aspect of it:)
Showing off the texture
The only real problem I had with this is that my cast on edge is a lot looser than my bind off edge. No one will notice that when I'm wearing it, but it's something that I want to work on in the future.
I really hate selfies, and I'm not real good at figuring out how to wear scarves and such, but since it was a 'cool' 85 degrees out (and that was at 9:00 am, we are heading for 102 today :-0 !!) I thought I'd try it on.

Now I'm off to scramble through my stash. I was thinking of working on my socks, but now I'm thinking I need to start a new project. We will see what I come up with!!


  1. Shannon, way to go on your cowl finish! I think it looks great (and so do you). I love the color yarn you used for this one. Stay cool!

  2. A great finish. I love the stitch pattern and your colour choice.

  3. Lovely cowl, I love the cowl and the detailing. I hate when the lighting doesn't cooperate with taking photos, or I finish something at night and have to wait to take a photo of it!

  4. Lovely Cowl... looks great on...

  5. I love the stitch pattern and your colour choice.
