And, since we are on the topic of contests...Sophanne is having a contest that I would like to participate it. She asked that we post a picture of our favorite halloween costume. I never really go all out for Halloween, but last year I got invited to a Halloween party by my friend saying "You better come, and be in a costume". At the last minute, I picked out this costume from Ricky's. It was within my budget, and I really digged it because it had pink hair.

Hehe!! Oh, am my caveman friend... I met him at the party that night, and it was totally unplanned. However we did manage to snag the prize for "Best Couple Costume", even though we weren't really a "couple". Haha!! It was a lot of fun. Thanks J!!
So, I have knitting group tomorrow, and the weather is really cold. I am making something to keep me warm, and here is the first half of it. Hopefully I can finish it before my neck freezes. Yes, it's another Crofter's Cowl. I am in love with this pattern. I am making it using 2 skeins of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk Aran. This yarn is really soft. I casted on 80 stitches as the pattern specified, for a cowl that fit close to the neck. I have enough yarn to add an extra pattern repeat, and still have enough of a yarn tail to kitchener it to together. I am going Cowl Crazy. I plan on making at least 2 more in the near future.
