My little sister is one of those people who knows how to do everything. She sews, quilts, crochets, knits, crafts, cooks, bakes, gardens, and (I suspect) even makes her own dog food. And she does all these things beautifully and effortlessly. So you will understand that she was the last person I thought of when I saw this wonderful pattern knitted up at my LYS. It was greedily going to be mine, mine, mine! But then, inconveniently, holiday knitter's guilt crept in. I started to wonder if my sister extraordinaire ever was given a handmade anything because it was just assumed that she could make it herself. So this year I will be gifting her with a SHAWL COLLARED COWL by ALANA DAKOS of NEVER NOT KNITTING. I am using Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande (sooo soft, plus quick to knit up). I, of course, also picked up two skeins and some buttons to make one for myself (knitter's guilt is so fleeting).
