One Skein Roving Cowl | The Tale of the Macaroni Scarf

I love cowls and infinity scarves. I've never been super crazy about regular scarves...I think because they blow around and feel fussy. So far, I think I've made eight different cowls...the kids adopted a few of them thankfully. Mostly they have been an exercise in new techniques or stitches, not really following any sort of pattern. This is my first attempt at really following directions.

I had never even touched wool roving before. I am still not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I love and adore the look. It is the softest, squishiest thing I have ever touched. It is also super warm and cozy...which I love. But my near-obsession with hand lotion made it feel weird in my hands and it got stuck around my fingers often. My cat also has a new-found obsession with wool...Until I figured out that my WIP had to stashed up high it tended to move around when I wasn't looking. 

After wearing/hugging it for a few days, I sorta want one in every color. That is normal, right?

June 2019 Indie Pickup | Eventide Rose Gold Bangle

It is Polish Pickup/Indie Pickup time again! As a "maker", it is my favorite time because I finally get to reveal what I have been plotting in the shadows! June's prompt is "Weather" and I chose a beautiful stormy sunset picture and a wonderfully minimalist setting. I can't wait to wax ecstatic about it!

The Indie Pickup | Rainbow Reader Pendants

I have been working diligently on a fabulous new item for May 2019's Indie Pickup. It is an off-shoot of the practically-world-famous Polish Pickup, and it is a wonderful themed collaborative that seems to spark creativity every month. May's theme is 1980s, and of course I had to choose something loud from my childhood. I picked Reading Rainbow, and I am so glad I did.
