This is a Rock-Climbing cowl that I am knitting with one of my souvenir skeins from Sin City Knit Shop in Las Vegas. It has been in my desk drawer at work for the last couple weeks as my lunch/boring phone meeting project. I’m kind of jazzed to be using a souvenir skein so soon… Continue reading Yep – Another Cowl
Well, now that we are back again, I can tell you about last week’s trip – to fabulous Las Vegas Nevada! DH’s company sent him and three coworkers to AutoCAD University for the week, and I got to tag along. We just had to cover my flight and meals, making it an irresistible bargain.

I’ve been posting each day’s minis on Instagram, but held off on showing them here until I was a little further into the set and had a reasonable feel for whether I liked the… Continue reading Halloween Yarn: It’s a Thing
