...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Wham Bam Finished!

You may recall I posted about the Wham Bam Thank You Lamb cowl. Well hurrah hurrah! I am finished. Not just one, not two but three! I knit them as Chrissie prezzies so I had to keep on the down low about them.

They were great to knit up. Just my speed. Literally. You can whip one of those puppies up in no time but they look amazing! Thank you to 1funkyknitwit for bringing it to my attention in the first place. You can find the pattern for free download on Ravelry.

They're a straight garter stitch with an off centered seam to give it a cool angled cuff.

 I also made an amazing green one that I did not photograph, but the yarn on the sticks below is it!

I gave them each a quick hand wash and then blocked. Two were blocked already seamed. A tad tricky but I'd been so excited to seam them I forgot they hadn't been blocked! It still worked out and they all kept their shape. Of course I gave these all away but am planning on knitting one up in the blue for myself soon!


  1. Got a compliment on mine when I was out and about with it yesterday!

  2. You are supposed to say you slaved over it for hours!

  3. These are the most quickest and super easy amazing little accessories ever, that always look fab. I love all of yours, great colours, and the seaming part is a real test to how good you are at it cause the cowl is reversible and you see everything (yikes) - a tad on the difficult I find..lol
    I have a few of these cowls as you know but I'm also thinking that a handspun version would work well in it too, so me thinks that in the cards also .)

  4. A very cool pattern and great resulting cowls! I first learned about this pattern on 1funkyknitwit's blog as well - love the asymmetry. Reversible does make seaming a challenge. A technique I have to work on!


I love comments. They make me happy.
