As I typed a few days ago, my great-niece sent me 16 skeins of wool yarn! I thought she might be able to use a cowl hood in Nebraska where she lives and the winters are cold and windy, so I used a little over three skeins to make one for her. After a couple of false starts I ended up chaining about 75, then alternating rows of single and double crochet. I threaded yarn from top to bottom at the join of the cowl, pulled it together to form a gather and sewed a little sheep button on top. Then I persuaded all the girls of the household to model the cowl, except for Molly and me. Tomorrow I hope to pop it in the mail to fly to my great-niece :-)
Today we ate corned beef and cabbage, boiled potatoes and carrots. Did you?
