Cowl, "in the snood," in progress.
The photo above is a cowl in progress, "in the snood," pp. 88-89 in "Cowlgirls." It's an easy pattern, repeating six rows on size 9 needles. It can be worn as a cowl, or pulled up over your head. I'll be learning to knit I-Cord, a good excuse to pull the Elizabeth Zimmerman books off my shelves again.

Clearly, when the staining of my log home ends, because I am finished or forced to stop because of weather, I need to take a day or two and finish up these knitting projects. There are at three sweaters, in various stages, awaiting my attention. Good winter knitting!
