I failed at updating you with current projects last week, so here's one (technically two) that I'm most proud of.
I finished this hat and cowl set for my friend's birthday this past weekend, and I'm super happy with the results!
I bought the pattern on Ravelry, and even though the hat is great, I was somewhat disappointed in the price just because it was so simple. That said, it is a very pretty hat, so I guess I'm okay with it now. Plus, my friend loved it, so you can't ask for anything else, really :)
The cowl is a pattern designed by the owner of the yarn shop less than a block away from my friend's boyfriend's house in Philadelphia - coincidentally, where we bought the yarn to make this back in August. So felt like it was appropriate. AND it was really easy for looking so complicated. I was very happy with it, and the set looked great together.
Our trip to Philadelphia was so much fun. We had a tasy dinner at a restaurant called Southwark, which comes highly recommended by us. Hubby actually tried eating tongue and loved it. I couldn't get past the fact it was tongue, so I was content with my chicken, haha. Then we all went back to Pub & Kitchen for drinks. So all-in-all, a fun and productive weekend.
On a sidenote, I only have one nervewracking presentation left to give tomorrow afternoon for class and a 10-page paper due Thursday and then I'm done for the semester! And I think I discovered this morning that I only have five classes left instead of six, so if that's true, my day was made. Here's hoping!
