Yarn Along

omgoodness - can you believe how long it took me to finish this  
Neapolitan Cowl 
in gray!
It. took. forever.
I can finally say it's finished and I will be gifting it to my niece Deanna for Christmas!

This yarn is by hazel knits, a lively, hand dyed dk weight yarn,
90% super wash merino, 10% nylon.
This is a pattern Leanne recommended for me and I really love it.
It would be a quick knit for the dedicated knitter.

I knitted these leaves last fall - I would like to string them together to make a banner.
I will need a few more...which begs the question,
where on earth did I put the pattern?

We have been so very busy and it feels good to be home, 
relaxing, with both of our laundry baskets empty.
I cooked a really nice dinner last night and it actually felt good to be in the kitchen again.
It's a busy month for us and I want to savor each precious moment I have at home.
For me, home is my favorite place to be.
How about you, where do you feel happiest, on the road, or in the comfort of your home?

I agree, home is the best and like you I kit a knitting wall a while back with a pair of slippers but finally finished them and have now started a baby blanket for the hospital.

Home is my sanctuary. I prefer home to travel these days!

Angie said...

Debbie - congratulations on your finish. Beautiful. I definitely prefer to be at home, especially when the weather turns cool. I just want to snuggle up on the couch in front of the fire!

Rian said...

Yep! Home is best these days. Used to love road trips and may have a few more in me, but with the cold weather coming, I too prefer to sit by the fireplace with a good book until spring.

Beautiful yarns, and your niece is a lucky lady to be getting something handknitted from you. The cowl is very pretty and looks like it will keep her nice and toasty. I love traveling but when I know the traveling is almost at an end I can't wait to get home. I love being there and never want to move.

Awesome work!! That leaf banner will look great!

I love your knitted projects. I do enjoy going out, but home is always the best.

LeAnn said...

Your finished project is lovely as always. It is the perfect gift. I love the leaves you made too. I hope you find the pattern for more. I have missed following you and I will try to catch up a bit. Life has been too busy and I do love just being home.
Missing you and blessing and hugs too!

Oh it may have taken a long time but it looks perfect, sure she will love it. Oh I hope you find the pattern soon, the leaves look terrific and would be great in a banner. Oh I agree, it is fun to get away but my favorite place is home that's for sure :)

Sally said...

Beautiful cowl, Debbie. Love the leaves; hopefully you'll find the pattern. I'm not gifted in knitting as you are. :)

Though I do love road tripping around beautiful Tassie, I must admit I rather adore being in my little home. Your cowl might have taken a little bit longer than you would have liked to knit, but oh my, it is beautiful, Debbie. LOVE those little leaves. Yes, a banner with these pretties playing beautifully together is a most fabulous idea. Hope you find the pattern. =)
