Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I, um, don't have anything green for you today, but I'm sure you can peek out your door and see some green shoots and buds. It's almost spring!
With spring almost upon us, I realized I better show you some warm things I've crocheted before the sun returns, and we all want to throw off the wool.
Above is a cowl I made on Christmas day. Can you believe it took me three months to show it here? I took this Noro yarn with me in the car on the way to K's parents' house and had this cowl by the time we arrived.
I used half double crochet, crocheting in the back loop only every other row to create the ribbing.
I found the wooden buttons at the flea market.
The yarn is beautiful and the cowl is so warm. I'll be putting it away soon because I've heard the sunshine is coming back. I look forward to pulling it out again next fall.
Next up: socks! I've just got to weave in the ends and take some photos.

I hope you're having a lovely week.
I'm on spring break! Someone asked me what I was doing over the break and all I could say was, "Sewing!" It's true, my sewing machine has been humming every day. Lots going on here...
