So it's like this, guys. A friend asked me to knit something for an elderly relative in assisted living, so I knitted her a big cowl, which led to me to puttering around with some stash yarn and big needles. Well, after a few martinis, some bulky cowls appeared and seemed to catch the eye of some female friends. Here are a few pics of what some big needles in the tundra have turned out in the past week. The fringe was just a lark, but turned out to be rather fun. Without the fringe, 4 male friends are now keeping their torsos warm in our sub-zero weather.
