The days are still pretty warm here in Vermont but at night you can feel Fall starting to creep in. I have to say this has been one of the fullest summers for me and the kids in a long time. Perhaps it has something to do with not having an infant or very young toddler, my "baby" is starting preschool next week, but we really squeezed as much fun and relaxation as we possibly could out of the past few months. I am tired! Ready to send the kids off to school and knit up some warm goodies for the upcoming seasons.
It's been a while since I've knit something for myself and my favorite Fall and Winter accessory is a good shawl or cowl. Having something around your neck just makes you so cosy, don't you think? Last winter I was adorned all season long with my own Drop Stitch Cowls and I am sure I will be this winter as well but I wanted something a little lighter weight to get me to the snow. The Sweet November Shawl fit the bill perfectly and I had the perfect yarn in my stash.
I am really happy with the way this project turned out and it was a thoroughly enjoyable knit. All my project notes, details and more pictures can be found on Ravelry.
