I started surreptitiously but Youngest saw it and tried it around his neck and made suitably impressed noises even suggesting additional colours - I was delighted - my chrimbly-stash-busting-stress-sorting knitting was definitely on!
That was, until, it was finished. Talk about being completely unimpressed. Youngest was so not interested that I was quite taken aback. So the finished article sat unloved in the scarf basket (yes we have a basket filled to the brim with scarves, shawls, stoles and cowls near the coat rack) until that is, one day I needed something warmish to wrap around my neck.
I was late for work and I needed a quick fix, something not too warm, not too fussy, not too posh - just a no nonsense warm thing to wrap around my neck and I pulled out the unloved cowl.
Unloved no longer.
I have re-opened my original blog. I think it is time to do so, I often want to refer back to something that I had already spoken of but am unable to link to 11am as I had closed it. So, seeing it is the first day of the new month, I thought 'why not??'
