This is what I finished today and popped into my shop.
I was inspired by the nip in the air today

Ellisr,
That looks really nice. Classy and cosy at the same time.
Well done

Need more wool to do one for me as well and matching gloves (probably mittens)

Looks nice.  Wish I had time to sit down and knit.

That looks lovely and cosy  :)   Someone on here mentioned a moebius scarf where you put one twist in on a circular needle - that might work well in a cowl too, especially if it was double sided.   Your shop must be full of wonderful goodies ellisr

I have sold out of mobieus scarfs (I knit them in the straight then join in a twist)

I have an order for a couple of mens infinity scarves. I have just finished another cowl in chocolate brown with a patch of eyelash yarn knitted in for interest it is so nice I may just keep it for myself.

My shop is filling nicely with winter warmers but I am about out of wool and can't get for any until the weekend and the rate at which things are going I think it maybe empty again by then

What is a mobieus scarf?  I am busy knitting my granddaughters scarves with pockets for Christmas.

A moebius strip is a ring which has a twist in it so if you follow say the inner surface, it becomes the outer one, then the inner one again.  Take a strip of paper and hold the two ends together, then twist one around and hold them together again to see what I mean.  You can buy rings and bracelets like that - it also has a use in physics I think.  For a cowl or continuous scarf, the twist makes it sit nicely around the neck.  I made my first one by mistake when I was first learning how to use a circular needle and got the ribbing of a jumper wrong  :dunce:

Ellisr - you are clearly a mile ahead of me  :D  :thumbsup:

well not normally. I usually knit in the car to and from work but I have been off this week with a horrid cold so I have used all my wool now well maybe enough to make a couple of pairs of wristwarmers and I do have some socks to finish for OH so tomorrows projects lined up.

I have just finished an infinite scarf so I will allow it to settle and press and take some photos tomorrow.

Off to the market on saturday for more wool and I have a delivery of handspun yarn due any day, I am so excited.
