Playing Hooky

I needed a break from my Granny marathon so I decided to 'play hooky' and whip up this cute cowl!  It was super quick to make - it literally only took 1 hour and I think it turned out pretty cute!

I got the pattern from the website Sew She Sews.  It uses the techniques of front post and back post crochet and I love the ribbed look this technique gives!
On the Granny Square front - I have sent out 36 squares so far.  It's been a very busy week so I haven't been able to devote as much time as I would like - but I am still plugging along!

I have been checking out some wet felting projects and I may try this felted flower this weekend with my daughter!  I'll let you know how it turns out!


  1. LOVE this cowl! I'm going to try one, I think! :)
