17th of December – a cowl for fibers on friday

I believe this is called a cowl? I’s a scarf shaped like a collar. I always say it’s like a polo neck minus the jumper (sweater). it’s the third in the set to go with my gloves and hat. And it’s the best of the three pieces I’ve knitted over the last three weeks. I wear it all the time! Our house is freezing cold at the moment and we are running low on heating oil. But all of the suppliers are inundated with orders and requests and chances of us getting oil in the next 7 days to get us through Christmas are nearly none existent. So it’s time to ration. The snow we’ve had caused the demand to jump up and the roads are so bad that the trucks can’t get to a lot of people here in the countryside. So, the heating is off. Our indoor temperature is around 12˚C or 53˚F for most of the day, fun eh?

    Oh man, and here I go complaining I’m cold. Compared to you, I’m in heated heaven. Love the cawl-thingy… now you just have to knit a blanket and cuddle up with the man. :)

    Stay warm my friend! xo

    In Georgia (USA) we call is a cowl, but with a little more breadth. My husband asked me to make him a scarf, and now that I am a few rows away from completion, he wants a cowl instead. Men! You have such a lovely eye for color! I think your cawl is fantastic!
