The Cowl Goes On

The winner of a copy of the eBook River Ganseys: Strikin’ t’loop, Swaving, and Other Yorkshire Knitting Curiosities Revived from the Archives by Penelope Lister Hemingway is Roz Thompson, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who left a comment. Tune in Wednesday for another book review!

  1. I’m loving your new cowl – every bit as much as your Crazed Scandinavian Cowl.

  2. Loki-free – now that’s amazing!

    Love the colors and the patterns of your cowl. Loki needs a belly rub. M
