New Year yarnalong

I finished my cowl finally. I do like it! I wasn't sure - I've never had one before. I guess I need to block it.

Thought I must try a selfie, since it was just named the most annoying word of the past year but I couldn't get it right; still, it looks passable in black and white.

I'm kind of in between books right now, but have been looking through these two:

The Christmas one is from another library, recommended by Anne. The other was a present, and is very interesting, with much about ancient times.  Glad I don't live in that era, though.

Thanks to Ginny, and yarnalong.


  1. Your "selfie" is lovely :-) Best wishes for the new year!

  2. Beautiful cowl! And, nice selfie, too ( I like your earrings). I love Miss Read--such gentle. humorous stories. I am reading a book about Catholic history right now called, Converts and Kingdoms: How the Church Converted the Pagan West and How We Can Do It Again, by Diane Moczar. The first couple of chapters are about the late Roman Empire and the fall of Rome--I wouldn't want to have lived in that period either!


    1. Susan, I have several pairs of earrings from Hedgerow Rose Jewelry, which is linked on my sidebar in Places to Go - I love her designs!
      Your book sounds interesting.

  3. LOL ~ I don't think I'd want to live in Roman times either.
    Cute cowl! Looks like it will be really warn.

  4. Ohh I love that color! And the chunkiness of the yarn! And you knit something for yourself, I am jealous. I bet it looks wonderful, and keeps you warm, too.

  5. It looks warm!
    I've made one for myself, but I'm clearly more of a shawl person...

  6. Your cowl is beautiful and I'm with you on selfies, just can't seem to embrace those or get them right. Thank goodness too since they are incredibly annoying - but not yours!
