One-a-Day Granny Cowl

My One-a-Day Granny Cowl is finished!
(Well, if you don't look at the 7 squares x 6 rounds + 1 black round's worth of ends that is still flapping happily about...)

We left yesterday afternoon on an impromptu hunt with the boys, I had just  about time to grab my hookie things.  While the eldest and Dad were freezing their butts off in the hide since 07h00, youngest and myself placed ourselves as close to the fire as we could, back at camp:



I just had one row of singles to do, all around.  My fingers were freezing!


In the end I hung the scarve around my neck while doing the last bit!  
Here it's all done and doing double duty with my beanie.  




Worked a treat :-)

(You'll note that I'm discreetly quiet about The Great Romany Blanket...)

If you would like to participate in One-a-Day, please link your project in the Tuesday's Tallies at Carole's blog, Gingerbread Girl.

Gorgeous cowl. We could use one here in Melbourne too as its very cold here too. I did check out your african flower hexagons. Oh my, the african flower blanket is going to be beautiful. Seeing them all laid out, the green border was a good choice as they stand out nicely.

The thought of you sitting by a fire, while the men hunt, in Africa... it sounds so exciting!

Lovely cowl, too.

Nice! Funny... I was dreaming about making something with the colors denim, burgundy red and fudge brown last night... And here you are with the same kind of color mix. Looks great and cuddly.
Thanks for popping over and good luck with school start. My kids are already bored (!!!) after 1 week of "vacance"... the silly small monsters. :D
Ciao!
