Smile? No, just a self-portrait. The cowl is finished, and it's toasty-thick and perfect to wear with my sweater.
This is the pattern that goes with the cuffs that I finished a week ago. The cuffs have come in handy...like on Sunday when the furnace/heating expired at church. The 55ºF sanctuary wasn't very kind to my cold fingers, nor was it to the organ pipes and piano. Our first hymn was sung in two keys: The piano in one, and the organ a half step lower. It was painful for some of us... I put on my cuffs. And no one complained about wearing choir robes!
