when the cat's away, the mouse will...knit?

Curtis left this afternoon for his week in sunny southern california.
i was sad to see him go.

i think he was masking his excitement like i tried to mask mine last week when i got to go on my first business trip. i am so proud of him. right before the holidays he was given a much-deserved promotion and this is just the icing on the cake...although i do hope that he doesn't have to travel too often, i'm excited for him, just as he was excited for me.

but i miss him. already.

but when i got home from the airport i got down to business. i had a knitting project to finish. and that's exactly what i did.

cozy cowl

it's cozy and warm and my first cable knit project. it's not perfect, but quirky and fun.
so i'm going to take a risk and do my first blog giveaway.

{not sure how this will go over, or if anyone will even want it, but if not - it's okay,  because in that case i'll just keep it for myself}

just leave a comment, and i will choose one comment-er at random on friday and will then send you this handknit cowl scarf as my gift to you.

Okay, Curtis... you're hilarious. Correct and hilarious.

I absolutely would love to have that cowl so I would absolutely love to be entered. Great work - I learned cables last year and those do not look like first-time cables... Lovely work!!!

I'm trying to teach myself how to knit again and getting so frustrated! You've inspired me to keep trying! :)
