I knit this cowl in one day for my son's "best friend who is a girl". Her birthday was at the end of November and little man wanted me to make her something handmade in addition to her gift. I used the gaptastic (like this one I made this past March) and modified it for a child. I cast on 93 sts this time for a slightly smaller fit.
It's hard for me to believe that it's snowing now and it was snowing 8 months ago when I knit my last one.
It was such a fast knit and while I was knitting, the kids were reading the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It's funny how their sense of humour has changed over the last couple of years and they are no longer reading "cutesy" books. We now do silent reading where we read the same book and giggle at the funny parts.
My children's newfound independence gives me a bit of a break too and I can knit guilt-free in the daytime!!
This is the card that hubby chose and it's the cutest!
Here's what it says on the inside
Now all I have to do is wrap it up, add a gift card, and I'm done! I love fast knits!
