Boy Girl Party dot com

I picked up a couple of adorable paper goods from BoyGirlParty at the Muse today and thought they were too cute not to share!

Sweet kitty notepad.

Little pup recipe cards.

I settled on these two but also really wanted these fox recipe cards, this octopus to-do list, & this owl graph pad.

Pretty much everything in the shop is great, but my first introduction to her work was a print of the image on this shirt:

That little baby pup wrapped up in the bike basket totally did me in. Most items available on her Etsy as well.

Easy as pie knit cowl

My camera isn’t working, but I knit an easy-peasy, super cozy, warm, and cute cowl yesterday. Seed stitched on the bottom, stockinette stitched body, 2x2 ribbed on top. I'm posting the pattern so that I don't forget it, but honestly I just made it up as I went along and it s was as pie!

Using US size 9 circular needles, cast on 52 stitches.

Row 1: k1, p1 repeat til end of row, add stitch marker.
Row 2: p1, k1 repeat til end of row.
Row 3: same as row 1.
Row 4: same as 2.

Knit 22 rows.

Row 26: k2, p2 repeat til end of row.
Row 27: p2, k2 repeat til end of row.
Row 28: same as row 26.
Row 29: same as row 27.

Bind off.

Jump up and down because you just knit a cozy cowl in 2 hours! Hurray!
