So, I’m just gonna throw this out there and see how it looks. I have been stuck on making cowls as of late. They are just so . . . pretty! And they don’t take forever to make. I began by thinking I might make a fabulous throw, or spread. But, I just don’t seem to be any good at completing a large project. (Or, at least I haven’t found one that I am passionate enough about, yet.)
I never know quite where the inspiration is going to come from. I found a lovely table runner in a J. & P. Coats/Southmaid booklet called “Table Treasures”. (Book 0134)
I have a few ideas on how to finish this lovely. The photos don’t really give you an idea of the size. Right now it measures about 38″ around, and 9″ tall. It doesn’t really have enough ‘substance’ for my liking. So, I was thinking I could add another row or two of motifs, then it would be really nice and warm around the neck. It would kind of fold up on itself nicely. Or . . . I was thinking about a lining. Maybe. Crochet??? Fabric??? Color??? A nice green background might be quite stunning.
Then, there would be an edging to think about. Maybe.
I think I’ll sleep on this one some more. Until the weekend.
Please . . . share your thoughts! I love hearing from you all!
