12 Hats/12 Cowls

Since I decided last year’s 52 hats was more than enough, I am scaling back to 24 items in this category. The thought has been kicking around in my head and I finally decided to get some ideas down. I will try to balance a hat and cowl each month, we will see how it goes. These lists are by no means set in stone, just a selection of patterns I have in my library or plan to obtain.

      I decided there were too many cowls in my queue to ignore them any longer! Hoping I like the others more than the one I am working on now! It’s my color choice I think I dislike, not the pattern. > >

    that is quite a list! Thanks for including the pattern links. May I suggest one other cowl? It’s the Hillview Road cowl….a fun knit, pretty stitch and free on Rav. Happy New Year!

    Hi Chris! I couldn’t get your link to work on the red/white table runner – just FYI. It might be the network here at work though. This looks like a very doable list for the week. Go Chris go – keep that ball rolling. Happy Tuesday. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Oh my — I feel like I need to go on Xanax after reading your list!! 😉 But you are cranking away, and the projects that feed your soul are blessings rather than burdens. I hope you find the time to do them all, and enjoy every stinking minute of it!

      LOL! Yes, I have rather bitten off more than I can chew, but hopefully parceled into each month they are less of a bite? Now, go lie down and rest. Bwahahahahaha!!!! > >
