My finished, knitted object (FO) is another Birthday Cowl. I think I've knit this at least 10 times. It's easy to memorize and takes exactly 1 skein of Manos Silk Blend -- a great and fairly quick gift-knit, although I did keep 1 for me and wear it frequently. My local yarn shop closed this month (Linda of Linda's Knit & Stitch retired) and I stocked up on a bunch of Manos before the end. This colorway reminds me of peacocks and is a Christmas present for my brother-in-laws girlfriend.
I tried to photograph this right after typing the above. Two cameras we own had dead batteries. I had to steal my phone back from the 3-year old who had earned a few minutes of PBS Kids, then dodge her and Little G as they continuously photo-bombed the pic. Little G kept coming in for the grab and Big Sis kept shoving him aside and trying to straighten the cowl for Mommy.
Edited to add: Ha, ha, this didn't get posted yesterday because I started it, couldn't get the pictures downloaded, and then went to bed. I guess my NaBloPoMo pledge is already kaput!
I still can't get the Birthday Cowl pictures to cooperate. So here's one last Halloween pic...Big Sis looks like she's got a pumpkin for a head.
Finally, a cowl picture. The colors are not at all accurate in this picture. Umm, our rug is definitely gray, not yellow as it looks.
