dirty doz '14: alice's monster cowl!

Untitled Now that it's spring, of course I finished knitting a GIGANTIC wool cowl for my cousin Alice! This is for the handmade pay it forward I joined a while ago, it took a really long time to find the perfect "Alice" project, but after making this pattern for myself earlier in the year and loving the result I realized she definitely needed one too. It's always really fun making gifts for people that you know they'll like, spreading the handmade love! She got it in the mail yesterday on the rainiest spring day ever and sent me great pictures of her wearing it right away. Making cool people smile really is the best part of crafting :) I also sent along some matching pompoms for their yarn enthusiast cat who's sure to "spread the handmade love" all over the living room floor haha.

Next winter will quake when it sees this Alice! I'm glad you like it!

  1. Thanks again ... I love it! It's probably the softest, warmest thing I own. As someone who makes a lot of stuff for others, it made me feel so special to receive something made for me.

    1. I know that feeling! It's on my bed right now :) Handmade gifts are my favorite to give and get for sure!
