About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Knitted Cowl

Good Morning All

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
********
We are having a very quiet one, going out for an Indian meal, no special menu, then meeting friends for a drink.
******
I saw a pattern for this knitted cowl on Whoot.
I used two strands of double knitting on size 7.5 needles, but probably could have used a larger size.
It grew very quickly and I did it in two days.


This is my version.



I am knitting another one for myself, slightly different though, as I have given this one to my friend as she works in a cold garage all day.







And here is Amanda wearing it
