Two final items from 2013.
1. Painted into a Color Corner Blanket
Begun in July, finished December 30. Pattern used: Stash-Buster Blanket by Jennifer Hansen, with an added herringbone double crochet border. This one is airy and lightweight which is what I wanted for a throw to be used in the summer on a cool evening.
2. Half a Cowl
Started and finished on December 28. Pattern used: Tamatori Cowl by True Brit Knits. This may look familiar. I knit the double loop version for me, me, me in some pre-New Year's selfish knitting, but when I wore it to my sister's on Christmas Eve it stayed there as a gift. Since I had extra yarn, I made this single loop version for myself. I knit the whole thing while watching The Great Gatsby. Wonderful design: quick, warm, and stylish.
