Yarn Along!!

I can hardly contain my excitement for today's Yarn Along.
I have something new to share, 
and you will never know how happy I am to be working on something different.
You may remember that last week I finished my 400 yard scarf, on my needles now 
The Honey Cowl.
The pattern is free on Ravelery and I have never knitted a stitch/pattern like this before.
Leanne my knitting teacher suggested this and sent me a link to the pattern...
at 5 p.m. when I am sure she had better things to do.
She answered my text, which was a shout out for "what can I make with this yarn"
"what can "I" do that will still be fun"?
She knows me, she is always there to help me...
this is so very easy, so beautiful's what I am babbling about...

You will have to pay attention to the pattern, I have a spot where my rows are "off".
But it is hardly noticeable and I am super pleased with how it's coming along.

I am using Madeline Tosh yarn that I had in my stash and the first picture is truer to the color.
If you are interested, here is a link to the free pattern.
Here's to a very happy knitting week, many thanks Leanne, you're the best!

I am joining Ginny at Small Things
