Surprise cowl

My friend Nan had her birthday in the end of August, and her sister arranged a surprise party for her. We went for a meal at a restaurant called John Carrigan's eating house..a very nice place to go. Anyway, as we all love Nan so much , she got lots of nice presents, and of them was a cowl, designed by the lovely Karen
Of course, when i got the pattern in my hand, I had to give it a go..and this is the result!

This is my daughter showing jhow it's worn;)
This is the correct colour
Here you can see the sparkly bits..a golden thread in the wool.
Ever so sorf and lovely!

sparkly vesty

I have decided to use some of my stash, and I received a full binbag full of wool some weeks ago, so now I have made this sparkly vesty...

The piscture doesn't show the colour or the vest itself very good at all, but as it's more and more autumn every day, it'll be really good as a layer under my jacket.

It's brown and sparkly, well actually i think the colour says copper..and it does need to be stratched to be able to see the lace at the bottom. It's this pattern I have used.

I will have even more to show you later on...but for now..I really need to have my lunch;)
