Dovetail Cowl



 I finished knitting this Dovetail Cowl last night and I am uber-excited about it! I've been knitting this beautiful curry colored cowl for my mommy's birthday coming up in October. I'm not good with secrets, so I already know that she loves it, haha. This was a simple pattern of knit and purl stitches to make a great mirrored chevron texture. The yarn I used was Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca, which was my first time using an alpaca yarn actually. I just loved it, I'm definitely going to be stashing up on more alpaca yumminess. It is super soft and lends a wonderful drape to the cowl.




now the hard part, getting it in the mail. I'm terrible at shipping gifts on time.
As for today, we're going to have a chill Sunday. I have a test I have to take but other than that, i'm just going to enjoy being with the hubby and playing with my babies...maybe do a little cross-stitching.
What are you're plans for today?
