I was eagerly looking forward to my retreat with friends last weekend, glad for the break and for some well-deserved knitting time on my sorely neglected Ravelympics project. But that really didn't happen. Ended up climbing half-way up Snowdon in the snow (fortunately no ice, but note to self: need new shoes. Preferably dry ones). All in all, I got about a centimeter of knitting done.

Got some pretty good pictures, though.





And, because it's Wales, the requisite sheep picture.

Also posted a new pattern on Ravelry before I left, the Jungle Cowl

February 1st through February 28th, 10% of all pattern proceeds will go to the British Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund.
With twisting cabled vines and reaching branches, this wild cowl will spice up your winter wardrobe, or dress it up in a more subdued color. The buttoned up side allows a little more breathing room.
Needles and Notions
US 8 (5.00mm) needles circular needles, at least 24in/60cm long
Four or Five .75inch/18mm buttons (depending on desired height of cowl)
Cable Needle
Tapestry Needle

Finished Measurements
9in/23cm tall and 20in/51cm wide (unstretched and unbuttoned)

The Jungle Cowl is available for £2.00 GBP at my Ravelry store (which you can now visit even if you don't have a Ravelry account! Go check it out).
