Here's the photo of the wonderful crocheted cowl I got earlier in the week from my friend Anne of Nana Gogo blog fame and now she has a lovely Folksy shop called Chloe Loves Crochet (and Knitting). Anne is a great lady who I happened to be paired up with in a swap last year and we've kept in touch ever since. Her knitting and crochet is so so lovely, from cabled arm warmers, to hats with panache, to cushions to grace any home do pay her a visit and bookmark her for Christmas shopping! (Yes I mentioned the C word but hey, here I can, it's my blog, lol)
This cowl is just so snuggly and cosy, I love the pretty stitches that I couldn't do in a month of Sundays. The flower is a brooch so I can detach it and wear it separately from the cowl if I want to. The colour is Mermaid, what a great yarn colour name!
Just to illustrate what a sweetie she is she sent this great book of poems that she found in a charity shop and thought of me. Cat poems? Mmm, now who to send it to, lol!
Have a great weekend all. I'm hoping to get out in the garden for an autumnal tidy up. Speaking of autumn I nearly had a seasonal accident the other day. It was the first official day of autumn, the wind was blowing, there were horse chestnuts on the ground everywhere, I was bending down to collect them, bright brown and shiny how could I not, when a big conker fell and just missed my head. Oooo that would have hurt :)
