Noble, Indeed

Holiday knitting is running rampant around all blogs.  I needed to do a few myself.  My favorite so far is the noble cowl for my Big Boss attorney.

A Noble Cowl (1)

It’s modeled here by the gorgeous Amy (vespagirl on Rav).  I used Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in a beautiful charcoal gray.  The pin is from Nicholas and Felice (my new favorite shawl pin etsy shop).   I purchased several as gifts this year.  I LOVE them.

So, how is your holiday knitting coming along?

  1. Umm. Did I miss something? What happened to your blog??? I’m not saying that I don’t like it but it just caught me off guard. I had to make sure I read the title right. Nice cowl and I love the shawl pin.

  2. Don’t mention my holiday knitting. Let’s talk about your holiday knitting instead, because you are done with this lovely cowl! It’s very elegant, I’m sure it’ll be oohed and aaahed over as it deserves.
