Just In Time...

It's my 50th post and I finally finished a knitting project!  I can't even remember the last time I could say this, but today I completed my merino candle flame cowl from this pattern by Sarah E. White.  Yesterday I visited the Totallysuperdeluxe pop-up sale hosted by Jocelyn Joson in her husband's video studio in Soho and found out they have these every other month, cool! 
I bought the frosted glass buttons above and wasn't sure what I'd use them for until I was finishing up my cowl...
I started this at the beginning of the month with Organic Merino Wool DK from Sublime that I got at Gotham Fine Yarn in the Lower East Side and thought the buttons would be a nice, little touch.

I admit that I sometimes start more projects than I finish, so it was good to get one done just in time for what will hopefully be a spring warmup soon after not such a great weekend. 
I also bought some bright daffodils to cheer me up and put them on my beloved desk next to an Easter project I started.  Hmmm...still have to finish that hat for my Dad too...but gotta post this before it's tomorrow, right now it's 11:59 p.m....

I love the soft pink on this cowlneck! Knitting is one thing I haven't ventured into just because these things seem to need patience..which unfortunately I do not possess! Great job finishing this project! Looks amazing :D

Jen Kim said...

thanks very much, MadsaboutU! i'm a reaalllly impatient person, but i feel like knitting (and crafting in general) helps slow me down a bit. at least for a little while ;-)

JENNYBABY said...

Jen Kim said...
