St Patrick's Cowl

I made this crazy cowl yesterday while working at The Net Loft. I imagine that if a leprechaun wore a cowl it might look a little like this. Of course this one is so huge, it might swallow a leprechaun whole! I used two strands of a single-ply puffy yarn and a size P hook, following the Yorkshire Cowl pattern from the Lion Brand web site along with my friend Becca who made a more subdued version in blue. We finished them in under 45 minutes. I figured if I decide it’s to crazy for daily wear, I’ll recycle the yarn for another project.

I also made Irish Brown Bread in honor of the holiday which was made with molasses and turned out quite yummy. It is supposedly an Irish granny’s recipe. I substituted whole wheat flour + wheat bran for the flour and soy milk + lemon juice for the sour milk. Last night a friend suggested that St. Patrick’s day would be more fun as a week-long celebration instead of just one day. I think I have to agree!

    Oh I don't think that's too crazy for everyday wear by any means! Especially in winter, it would be a nice snuggly pop of color under a coat.

    Thanks, Lauren–I did get lots of comments on it on St. Patrick's day–and I
    wasn't sure if that was good or bad, but I think I will end up keeping it.

    Hi Amy – It's fun to read yours and other CDV blogs and hear about Becca and the Net Loft now and then! I love to see your outdoor pics – makes me homesick… Summer will arrive quickly enough though. See you then! Christa

    Thanks! Yes–I'm lucky to have great photo backdrops right in my back
    yard–tho I wouldn't want to be doing a photoshoot today–it's 33 degrees
    and blowing 50mph with sleet and rain!
