It's all very busy behind the scenes at Nicsknots at the moment. I have the usual busy things but there are also exciting things that I am planning for the New Year meaning that I don't get much free time, adding Christmasy bits at school and general Christmas excitement, it's busy, busy, busy!
I've been thinking of making a cowl for the last few weeks, flicked through patterns, stalked people walking down the road who are wearing ones that look like I might like them and generally plotted then the other night I remembered that I had some Wendy Pampas super chunky yarn that would make a fab, quick night. Instant gratification for those short of time. Perfect. I cast on, twisted the stitches when I joined them. On purpose to make the twisted look that everyone is wearing at the moment.
Somehow I managed to untwist it and ended up with this....excuse the photo; me after 4hrs sleep. Not a good look.
I wasn't convinced but I have worn it all day today and I think I might need to make more. It is so warm and fairly funky too, even if there is no twist.
Before I go back to sewing and cutting, pop over to the P/Hop blog. They are doing give-aways at the moment and today you could win a Nicsknots Dr Who Miya bag as well as some Sparkleduck yarn....imagine, a present for you after all of your Christmas shopping!
