The green mystery socks just need a toe. And I have a finished project to share. Since I skipped my Monday update, this one is a surprise, I never mentioned I was knitting it. To be honest, it's not perfect. It flops over when I wear it, unless I bunch it or pin it in the back. But it does look really pretty with a jacket. Without a jacket Kevin says it looks like I'm wearing a doily on my neck. I don't really like scarves so I'm going to experiment with more cowls. I think maybe this one flops because it's too loose since i added an extra stitch repeat due to "big headedness". Next time I will not do that, and just go up a needle size.
This was a good learning project. I learned sewn cast off (super easy) and adding beads with a crochet hook (harder to find the size 12 hook than to actually do, but it is a bit fiddly) Expect more beaded objects!
I'd like to make this for my sister. But she's very stylish, so I'm not sure she'd wear a cowl... Would you?
