One thing I have wanted to knit for myself was a simple cowl that I could wear with just about anything. 2 weeks ago I found the softest alpaca yarn, and decided to whip one up. No, really. It took me one evening to make this!
Quite possibly, the easiest thing I've made.
Then we have the hat.
I bought this crazy pink puffy coat in the fall. Love it, but nothing matches it.
I found this skein of Crazy Zauberball yarn, and fell in love.
The hat is super easy as well, mostly stockinette stitch. The color transitions are very pretty. The hat is lightweight and slouchy. It's perfect.
