First Project of 2011

Hooray for finished projects!  I've recently decided to up the challenges with my knitting.  Why just admire cables from afar?
This is my first finished project of the year - the Breckenridge Cowl.

Of course I just realized that I sewed the buttons on differently than the designer...but hey - who's to know?  I don't think Nancy, my mom-in-law, will notice!

And the buttons look ok I think.
This is a thank you gift for Nancy, I hope she likes it!  The cables weren't that hard at all!  I've been putting off learning how to make cables for years now, but they were really very doable.  This was a great first cable project.  There is absolutely no shaping, so you can focus on the cables alone.


  1. Love it! Is that a new comforter? (not...that I ever saw your old one I don't think!)

  2. Nope - same old comforter. You know what the difference is? Sunlight!! We had a glimpse of it this weekend - heavenly :)
