crocheted cowls and owls!

This weekend I was sick with some sort of virus again.  Twice in 2 weeks.....that is some sort of record for me.    That being said, being sick is the one time I can be lazy without feeling guilty.

Soooooo, I did a lot of sleeping...and a lot of crafting....

I started on some ornaments....they just need bows and jingle bells and other bits to finish them up. 
(I got the idea here)


  

Matt and I swapped phones (well, sort of....he got my upgrade for Christmas...I got his old phone.)   I made a new cell phone case to go with it because my old case was getting pretty worn out.  Plus, the kids at school love to see the fun cellphone covers I come up with.  They'll get a kick out of this little owl.




The favorite thing I made is this ruffled cowl.  I made it with a skein of gorgeous yarn Jill gave me last year.  In an unrelated twist, I had recently purchased some handmade buttons and as luck would have it, they matched perfectly so I used them together.




I have the ruffle flipped up in the photo but I can wear it in a variety of ways.   Last night I wore it scrunched down a bit.   It is so warm and soft that I kept it on all night. 

 Here is hoping everyone has a great week....don't forget to VOTE!

I'm glad you're feeling better. I've had the flue twice in as many months and it was not nice at all. I did a tutorial on those mini wreaths last year, but mine are a bit different. You can find the tute here -

I plan on making more this year. I bought some more mushrooms and trees and tiny deer to embellish them.

I hope you are feeling better now. I love the cowl. The yarn was pretty and it made a beautiful cowl. The owl cell cover is very cute too. I'm still working on my ornaments. I have 4 done but now I'm thinking maybe I should have made something else.

That cowl is gorgeous!
I'm so sorry you're sick, though :(

I got your package today! Thank you very much. I think they might've gotten mixed up...I got the finger instead of the hair tie....but, no worries, It is really fun! My daughter will love it when I show it to her after school today :)

Hope you feel better soon!
