Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Petite Garter Cowl {Yarn Along}

Petite Garter Cowl {Yarn Along}

Charis's friend turned 4 years old February 28; we went to her birthday party March 1. I seem to have a habit of not finishing gifts for her friends{at least in time for the party}. This is something I need to work on.

I knit P. a Petite Garter Cowl, but since it was just garter stitch, it was boring, and I did NOT want to work on it. It took me 1 1/2 weeks to complete, when it should have taken me 1-2 hours. Do you have craft projects like that? This project would be great for someone who is just learning how to knit; I prefer projects that are going to keep my attention at least for awhile.

What are you reading or knitting?

  1. I have a garter stitch cardigan that I've been (not) working on for months now. Boring is right! I love a good, challenging knit. The follow your arrow KAL shawl was so much fun and interesting.

    1. I've seen many people post on Yarn Along who knit the follow your arrow shawl, and have liked how most of them look. I'll definitely considering knitting that sometime in the future.

  2. Yes - sometimes garter stitch can be downright boring. I usually can keep it going if there is some color change happening. Your cowl came out great though.

  3. How cute though! I hope you can continue! I wish I could knit :)

  4. I'm so bad for starting crafts then never finishing them. I decided once I wanted to make a quilt. I have no patience for all that measuring and exactness. I finished machine stitching the squares together (in a very crooked manner) and never got around to putting on the back, binding, and batting. Maybe I should just finish, even though it's the worst quilt ever made by someone ever, I'm sure my family will love and enjoy it :-)
