all for me

I had hoped to be posting about this shrug, but for some reason it has become my white elephant . It only needs a small portion of the collar,but,I am stifled...so I knit this cowl/neckwarmer from here and I am glad that I did.I used up some leftover yarn from this project and I thought it might work up nicely..and it did! I had a wonderful button to use on the cowl and am quite pleased...It was intended for a gift,but I have been a little selfish lately and believe I just may keep it. I have started this project also and I believe I will use this wonderful fabric from here .I think I will keep it also...is that selfish? I hope not...I'll just think of it as a little treat for me...

Oh, the color on the cardigan and scarf is great! I love your choice of buttons as well. Beautiful job!

Keep it! Only you can wear that color so well. I haven't seen your drop jacket before - that really looks nice on you. Sorry that your shrug is an ugh. Can it be saved?

Fabulous button on your scarf. Looking forward to seeing the finished pouch, the fabric/wool combo looks terrific. Will the finished product be big enough to fit knitting needles into it. It looks like a good knitting bag?
