FO: All Mine

Presenting the first FO of 2011 that is all mine: Shawl Collared Cowl by Alana Dakos. After coveting the one that I had made for my little sister, I wanted to cast on for one of my very own. This is a quick and fun knit, even for the second time around. The best part is getting to use buttons from the extensive button collection that is hiding in my closet. I love dark wooden buttons and now must go on the hunt for more. Here are two more Welcome to the World newborn hats for Suddenexpression's preemie hat drive. These are the little boy versions. So addictive to knit and fast. Hope everyone has a fun weekend! Check out these wonderfully talented bloggers at FO FRIDAY WITH TAMI'S AMIS.
