shadow thistles

I did so much knitting and crocheting the last couple months that my hands were out on strike for a few weeks.  I made most of my Yule gifts this year, finished eighteen projects:  hats, fingerless mitts, scarves, and cowls.  I also completed several other items that were not gifts, with three incomplete gift projects – but one of those was a “you have one more hat coming – choose the color and style (an either/or decision, not an open-ended one).   Finishing two of those this month, the other one will be started next month.













Completed:  shadow thistle cowl.  Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, colorway 59 (discontinued) – a dusty blue-lavender. The stitch used is the “Thistle Leaf” lace stitch pattern from Barbara G. Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns.
