this pattern was love at first sight. it all happened in a little but adorable knitting shop in hamburg, which is called mylys and is highly recommendable by the way. the ladies at the shop where competent, helpful and really nice and we had a nice chat about ravelry, yarn, patterns.. well, you know 🙂 even tim didn’t have to suffer too much during my yarn shopping, as there is a nice little cafe inside the shop as well where he entertained himself with a coke and magazine 😉
oh, yeah, i wanted to tell you about the owl cowl! there was an owlie owl cowl for sale at the shop and i loved it so much i had to knit it myself! thanks to ravelry i can even show you my inspiration!
knitting fair isle is always a challenge for me. i’m never quite sure if it’s too tight or too loose. but it worked out quite well… i’m getting better…
