Chunky orange cowl and a vintage skirt


 A lot of cowls and scarves (and boot cuffs for that matter) were in production in our household and it was quite a motley scene seeing  all the yarn gathered together on the work bench in an array of cheerful colors - because - we hardly dwell and work with  dull colors - honestly speaking. 

For the cowls I used an acrylic yarn from a local producer and although I am most into working and wearing 100% pure wool, such is so hard to find and often rudely expensive. 


I love the stitch in this cowl and the chunkiness along with the color makes it really adorable. I've paired it with Eva's new skirt - which is a kind of retro, or should I say vintage - and it almost brought tears to my eyes {almost} when she spotted it and gasped and I thought she is going to think it's old and ugly, but she exclaimed that it's the one for her.  I guess she's her mama's girl! 


And of course! A little goofing around during the photo shoot- otherwise - it just wouldn't be us :)

Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

PS My best friend made me a chunky cowl (that gaptastic cowl pattern that is on ravelry) for Christmas and I love it and I am inspired to pick up the knitting needles again.
