Finito: Inspira Cowl

Last week, I posted about my Inspira Cowl in progress. After 13 hours of pure knitting pleasure, we can stick a fork in it.

That’s a great book I’m holding in my hands. :-)

It’s called a cowl, but it’s more like a capelet, and it’s quite warm. I wore it to volunteer at the library last week, and three patrons who said they were knitters loved it—one used the word “stunning”—and wanted to know every little detail.

I imagine my little town will become very colorful very soon.

The yarn does all the work.

My brother took these pictures on Christmas Day. Late in the day because we had stayed up until 4:30 that morning playing Galaga and then Jenga Gigante* with his wife. I lost every game, both electronic and analog.

But I can knit like a boss.


*His wife loves the game Jenga, and last year he made a life-sized Jenga game for her for Christmas. The wooden blocks are the size of bricks, and you play it on the floor. You also have to say Jenga Gigante at the volume and in the way a World Cup announcer says Gooooooooooooal!

To Ponder: Making a decision usually means taking one of two roads. One is doing the right thing. To take the other road, you have to sit back and spin a story around the decision or action you are taking. If you find yourself thinking up an elaborate justification for what you are doing, you are not doing the right thing. |-Wayne Sales-|
