Happy Monday!!! Hope you all have had a great weekend. I have once again separated my shoulder and rotator cuff on my right side. Spring is coming and I have started to come out of my hibernation and on Friday I thought a good way to pep up the old bod was to do two Pilates routines in one day. I've done it before, but this time it was a bad idea and the shoulder went snap, crackle, pop! That stopped my cleaning of the studio for Saturday in its tracks. However, I found that I could knit with little to no pain because my right arm stays pretty stationary when I knit. So, with ice on my shoulder I snuggled up on the sofa and finished my little eyelet and lace cowl.
I made the i-cord long enough that it can be tied in different ways so that you can enhance the type of outfit being worn. Above it is tied in a traditional bow, which is feminine and enhances the knit design.
In the end I like how this turned out. I'll be putting this pattern on Ravelry tomorrow and selling it for 1.99$ US. The proceeds will go to the earthquake victims in New Zealand. My friend, Jane lives there and although she and her family are doing fine, I want to help the people of the area in some way. If you don't have a Ravelry account, I'll also be listing this on Etsy and E-bay or you can contact me directly. You'll be giving to a good cause and this will make great gifts.
Peace and joy to you all...
The Green Girl.
