Busy Making Stuff

I've been making the most of my last few days of Winter break. So far, I'm 1/4 way done re-knitting a shawl (I'll explain when I'm finished knitting it) & I've finished my Spiral Cowl and Thorpe hat. The first is for me, the second is for a friend of mine.

Pattern: Spiral Cowl
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts, 24 Karat
Needles: size 6 circs.
Note: I still need to find a button and add it along with a crochet loop to the cowl so I can wear it closer to my neck. I'll post more pictures once that's done. I'm hoping to find one in my stash.

Pattern: Thorpe
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Deep Charcoal Heather & Wool of the Andes Blue Bonnett
Needles: Size 8 DPN & Circulars
Hook: Size G

Oooh, I like the spiral stitches! That's very striking.

And I love the color contrast in the hat. Looks like he'll be stayin' warm in the out of doors.
