For some reason I spent the summer knitting bulky knit cowls. No idea why. Here's one I actually remembered to photograph last night. The pattern is from Vampire Knits: Projects to Keep You Knitting from Twilight to Dawn . It was easy and quick to make, which is good, as sometimes you just need a weekend project!
Vampire Knits was the first book by Genevieve Miller that I contributed to and I absolutely love it. She's a great author to work with. Also, I say this at conventions and talks all the time, if you're looking to get patterns published, or thinking of writing a pattern book, try being a contributor! It is so much easier! You get your yarn, turn your patterns in, maybe answer a few tech questions and you're done! Much less stressful than actually being the author or the lead on the book!
Also I finally organized my yarn room. Expect more finished project pictures as I found an entire box of things that just need blocking and weaving to go from UFO to FO!
