Stashbusting Cowls

I am happy to report that I've actually, finally done some stashbusting.
No clue where I got the yarns or how long I've had them.
These are my first ever cowls.  The pattern is an easy one from Fiber Flux called the Caterina Cowl.  They look nice on.  Not bulky, with just enough drape.

I tried to make one from this ribbon yarn but it was way too thick so it became a little bowl instead.
For more stashbusting projects you can visit Linda's Crafty Corner.

Our weather took a turn for the worse and we woke up to high winds and dust today.

Really very blah!
Hope your Sunday is a good one.

Great stashbusting, love the different colours.

Dee said...

Love the colors on that second cowl. Perfect for your upcoming autumn.

Quinn said...

Really satisfying to stashbust, isn't it? I've been enjoying doing the "random rummage" through stash lately. And when you end up with a cute, useful item...bonus!
I hope your dust and wind blows right on through, leaving you with more blue sky days for your walks :)

Those are all beautiful.

Our weather was fantastic today until just the past 1/2 hour when it's turned cloudy. We got up to a high of 60 which is very warm to us considering it's February in Illinois. I was barefoot out in the backyard grass (snow is mostly melted now except for the shady places). We have to take advantage of these days here since they are rare in the middle of winter.

Hope you have a nice new week,
Linda

Teresa Kasner said...

Bravo to you for using yarn up and making such wonderful things! I'm using all my cotton to make baby hats for Taci to take to Brazil. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Betsy said...

Pretty, pretty cowls and the bowl is really nice too. I love all of the colors.
We have temps in the 60's which is really, really nice for February. I wish it meant that spring was truly here. I'm sorry about your weather.
Blessings,
Betsy

Congrats on your first cowls! How fun! And, they look great! The little bowl is cute! I love the idea of putting ribbon yarn in a crochet bowl. I have several skeins of ribbon yarn and have been having a hard time figuring out what to do with it. Hmmmm?! :-)

Dearest Tammy,
You are becoming more and more advanced in your crocheting; love the cowls!
As for our weather, we did have a lovely sunny and warm 69°F Sunday and we took a lovely walk together. Much needed to unwind.
Sending you hugs and hope the 'blah' weather will soon leave you alone!

Lovely crocheted cowls you have created. And how very clever of you to fashion a bowl out of a cowl you began. Creative Crochet Bliss...
Hope the dust settles.

Wanda said...

Lovely colors. Your cowls are really beautiful.

Those cowls would be cozy and warm on cold days. Love the little basket. Hope the sun soon shines again.

A self made design cause of myriad colours. Wow. The basket looks lovely too

Lovely cowls Tammy, it's amazing what beautiful things we can produce with scrap yarn that's been lying around for ages. Have a great week. :) xx

Yay, for stashbusting!! I LOVE the colors in those cowls, Tammy. And, how you shifted from cowl to bowl knowing just the right way to use its texture. Well done. Hope today is beautiful! blessings ~ tanna

Hi Tammy,

I love what you did with your stash. The cowl is lovely!!

Amy at love made my home said...

Beautiful makes - especially the second of the cowls! The bowl is lovely too, I am on a basket making thing right now! xx

Ljubinka said...

Beautiful cowls, so sweet basket!
Happy week.:*

Bety said...

Oh, this is a great small bowl. If I knit, I would immediately make one for Easter eggs. And whether it is possible to do so small that it can serve as a basket for an egg?

Beautiful cowl and very pretty colors. I am so chilly right now siting by my computer and often times I wear a scarf or cowl in the house. I am always cold!

My Garden Diaries said...

The cowls look fabulous, Tammy! I think I will make some of these for our winter months. Thanks for the link.

Nice little bowl too.

OH, I feel sorry for you with all that dust. Is it something you ever get used to?

I hope it clears in time for a lovely weekend. xo
