It’s almost Labor Day, the Minnesota State Fair is running and I’m still in a tank top. However, fall is peeking it’s head out in the evenings and will be here any day.
The leaves will start changing and I will get excited to pull out my fall clothes and gain a winter jacket (meaning winter weight gain for all you who don’t live with brutal winters) and wear scarves.* There are so many good scarf patterns out there – so don’t expect this to be my last.
This cowl is really soft, made of really chunky fabric and possibly over-dramatic buttons. I think I might have been better off just getting smaller ones. Next time. It is really warm and cozy, so when my mom posed for me, I had to shoot the photos quickly since it’s actually still in the 80’s here.
This one isn’t going in the giveaway pile, I gave it to my mom. Well, I guess I should say it went in the giveaway pile but I already gave it away.
If you want one, let me know and I’ll whip one up for you…if you pay me. Heh heh, I don’t have a job yet and I gotta make monies where I can.
If you’re heading out to the State Fair, eat some cheese curds, cheese on a stick, Dole whip and a lemonade for me. Those are my staples. After I eat those, then the real eating begins. Muhuhaha, see you soon, Winter Coat.
*I’m really not a “Hooray for Fall” person until I’m forced to be. I love summer and the heat where you walk out and it feels like you’re taking a hot air bath.

I LOVE this! So cute!
P.S. How much are these? I believe I would like one 🙂
I love it! I need one of these 🙂
Yes. What is the price? I would like one and maybe some for gifts for others…let me know!
Woo hoo! Ok, so I looked and the supplies costs me about $32.50 to make. So, that, plus whatever it costs me to ship it to you, so probably like $35.00. Would any of you still like one? I should also say that this particular chunky yarn comes in purples, blues, grays, reds and this fantastic yellow/blue/green/purple blend.
It’s a Kettle Dyed Pure Merino Wool, but not scratchy in the slightest.
Let me know!
Yes, I would love one in red – and I like the big buttons – they add just the right touch. I will send you a check upfront. Thanks!
The yarn store is closed today, but I will pick up the yarn tomorrow!
Id like a grey one or blue. Surprise me!
Ok! Sounds great!
