if you'll recall, i did a swap with my knitnight group last january... my friend little heather was handstitching a squirrel for me but wasn't quite done by the deadline. so she insisted i take a ball of her gorgeous handspun. after attempting to refuse, i told her i would take it, but that i would knit her something with it. so here it is, little heather's completed cowl, knit with her amazing handspun:
the pattern is the cooper cowl by ina braun (rav link) and i'm oh so pleased with how it turned out!! it's just the right amount of floppy while still being warm and snuggly and giving enough neck coverage.
so you wanna see my squirrel?!? of course you do!!
isn't she just the sweetest thing on the face of the earth?!? i love love love her! and she fits in perfectly on my mantle!
