Something from the past

Today I'm going back in the past a bit and reposting something from 10/05/13. I couldn't come up with anything so I though I'll just go back to last year. Well apparently I didn't have anything to post on this date last year either so I had to go back two years. You get a special surprise since I went back that far though.

so here is the post from October 5, 2013

I guess I've been in a bit of a crocheting mood lately. Maybe it's the cooler weather that has me thinking about warm scarves and cozy blankets. Since it takes me forever to crochet a whole blanket scarves, cowls and other little projects satisfy my craving to create something quick.
After doing the infinity scarves I decided to try a pattern for a cowl. When the wind blows I like to have something extra warm around my neck to keep the chill off.
The pattern comes from Fiber Flux and is called Meringue Cowl

Instead of the yarn called for in the pattern I used what I had. I used two strands, one was Red Heart super saver and the other was a homespun yarn.
 This picture cracks me up because obviously I was confused as to where the camera was. I don't know what the heck I was looking at.

While this cowl is perfect size for an adult, it should be noted that the size may not be suitable for everyone.


  1. I actually remember this post! The cowl is perfect for this season :) The picture of Duke wearing the cowl is so adorable!

  2. Sweet!! I remember this post. And thing is, I was all gung-ho to make a cowl for myself, but never got around to doing it. Go figure.

    How I miss Duke. But, Gibbs is our sweet co-host now, and he's just as adorable.

  3. so glad you archive dived. i love this photo of you and Duke and i do remember it. loved it then love it now. the cowl is really nice and perfect for keeping out the cold. for some reason cold air on the chest/throat is worse.

  4. every time i take a photo of me in mirror, with web cam or selfie i am always looking off like that.

  5. Lovely cowl Ann...and how wonderful to see Duke. xx

  6. Oh Duke, it is do good to see you and you look mighty snappy in the cowl. The Mom did a great job on that. Have a great day.

  7. Daisy would probably wear this,she likes to stay warm.I put a coat on her last year and it was a battle to see who could pull it off.

  8. Awww on Duke. I linked this post to Awww Mondays. You know how much I loved Duke. Almost as much as you did/do.

    Have a woof woof Awww Monday. My best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  9. I remember this post and photo of you but had forgot that Duke modeled it too so that was a wonderful surprise! We miss him!

  10. Very nice picture of you and I like the cowl on you.
    Most times I take pictures looking away. Or too close.

    Your dog looks so cute in it.

    Have a great day.

  11. A sweet memory to make us all smile. Thank you.

  12. Lovely work, and it's so cute on the dog that way! But yes, it fits you perfectly.

  13. I love the size of this cowl. It's not too big or bulky. Sometimes those things just seem to take over my neck and I don't want to wear them for very long.

    I miss Duke!

  14. I've been away for all things "blog" for a while....what a treat to come back and see you AND Duke! I also loved the "If the broom fits..." index card in the previous post!

    Happy October Ann!
