Hope everyone had a great week! Just like many of you, I am knitting away and trying to get my handmade gifts ready for Christmas. I’m about halfway through…
While getting into the crazy and hectic holiday season, I didn’t realize that there was a slight glitch in the Purl Avenue website. If any of you had submitted a comment through this site within the past week or so and I did not respond back, it’s due to the glitch. I was able to recover some of the comments and questions that were submitted but I’m not sure if I was able to get all of them. I apologize for the inconvenience. Rest assured, this problem has been fixed as of this morning so there shouldn’t be anymore problems 🙂
Now on to more happy news. I did manage to finish a new cowl pattern this week and this is in lieu of the “Quick Knits” series I am doing. I think you all are going to love it.! It is by far my favorite cowl pattern. This cowl is done with a simple mesh pattern and is perfect for beginning lace knitters.
Circumference is about 34″ (approx. 86cm) around and 8″ (approx. 23cm) wide.
This cowl took me about two to three days of on and off knitting to complete. If you are interested in giving someone a hand-knit cowl for Christmas, this is it!
