RED NORO COWL FINISHED..

And I added 3 flowers as an option...I couldn't believe i needed to buy another ball of Rowan wool to finish the red cowl.
So i had a good look in all the bags of wool...and there it was a full Ball most of which is still left, but i finished the top row of edging and edged the bottom too
 
Finished for one of the challenges on Challenge 52 on Ravelry...
I'm really pleased with it and just as pleased I didn't need to buy another ball of
Rowan Aran to finish it off.
 

and I also finished a second cowl with the Challenge 52...
 
Well it's finished too...


The challenge was to finish an old project or unpick it...I unpicked one project and finished this cowl with some of the James C Brett Marble, using a small amount of a lime and aqua marble that blended into the lime i then added smaller pennies to the lime end of the cowl
i used a 5mm hook but the lime is a DK so it looser and slightly more open than the aqua which is a chunky.
I also have started two more projects with the unpicked project....
 Thanks to the Week 8 Challenge 52
 
Happy Hooking

  1. Sue, both of these cowls are stunning and I love the addition of the flowers on the red one. I reckon the penny edge cowl could be within my capabilities can you tell me where I'd find a pattern. Finally finished my first blanket this weekend..yay!

  10. Just gorgeous. Love your work. Love crochet but this is pushing the boat out a bit and takes it from domestic to artistic.
