More catching up!

I went into the city one Monday a long time ago and picked up some of this lovely Malabrigo Mecha.
When I brought it in I immediately wanted to make something.  The skein was wound into a ball and we played with the gauge.  It looks like is should be a worsted weight yarn but it really is a chunky.  The ball lived at the shop and people played with the needles and yarn every once in a while.

Finally in January I found the right project and completed it quite quickly.  The pattern is 'Moonpath Cowl", a pattern available through Ravelry.  It's one of the in store patterns that you can purchase through the shop and then it goes into your Library and your computer!  It is a great way for me to offer almost 200,000 patterns without ever having them out of stock.  Plus the designer gets paid and then can spend more time designing other great patterns!

It took 2 skeins of the yarn to make this rather large cowl.   The Yarn again is Malabrigo Mecha , the pattern uses 8mm circular needles (24 inches works best).

It took 3 computers to finally get this posted!

There are a lot of things happening all over our lives this weekend.  'The Boy' leaves on another big adventure and won't really be home until December.  'The Farmer' is installing a huge new way to do his job.

We will keep you posted!

See You Soon.
