Kaelah Bee

I know that you are so over winter accessories right now.  Everyone is hoping/wishing/praying for spring.  But I had been meaning to post about the cowl I sent to Kaelah after she did my blog redesign.
 I don't know why, but I saw this bright blue and it made me think of her.  Maybe its the brightness of her personality.  Anyhow, I decided to make her one of my chunky bow cowls because she likes bows and its fun.
Like usually, I played with taking some pictures of it before I shipped it off.  A lot of times I never see or hear of my things again once they leave.  Oh sure, people say they will end a picture, but they rarely. do.

 For the knitterly among you, this cowl is in seed stitch and the large bow is actually sewn on diagonally across the cowl.  
Its big, floppy, and super soft.  I hope she gets a lot of good use out of it next year, being that it is so late in the season this year.

I like how despite all my best efforts, she gets a better picture with her phone.  Hmm.

Anyhow, i am sponsoring over at Little Chief Honeybee this month, so I thought it was a good time to post about the bow cowl.  I am going to miss the winter accessories as I work fast and furious on all my spring stuff.  

Last night I started working on some sock needle size stitch markers.  They will comfortably fit needles size 5 and below, although I think you can get them on a 6 if you really really want to.  This first set is green pearl beads, I posted a preview pic on my facebook fan page this morning.  I am trying to decide in what quantities to group the sock size markers.  3s, 4s or 5s.  All my other markers are in groups of 5, but if you have an opinion on what size set would be most attractive to people who knit socks, let me know.  Obviously if I group them in smaller quantities the sets will cost less.  I really do want to hear your opinion!

Oh yay I remember your blog about a random act of kindness and you had knit something for someone and mailed to them as a surprise but couldn't obviously tell or show us until after she got it, right?!? The cowl is bluetiful (hehe)!!!
