Smitten with knitten. The Ruby Needle

Winter knits from The Ruby Needle on Etsy.


This photo with boats in the background confirmed I needed one of these.
So I wrote to Beth asking if she wouldn't mind making a special cowl for me
in gray 100% merino wool.  Beth was absolutely wonderful about sending
information on different shades and types of yarn.


My cowl arrived last Saturday.
I tore into the package while sitting in the car with the abandon of a toddler
and squealed and grinned like one too as I slipped it on.
It was so cozy I wore it all day, and I mean all day. 
Even after I put on my pj's.

I had no clue what I missing.
Thank you Beth I love it.
