I got my electronic bulky and decided to bring it to our guild meeting this month. Bonnie helped me read my manual and taught me how to set up my machine for open tuck. I think because of my previous experience with her making this I was off and running quickly. Next thing I knew I had made my first cowl. One of the guild members had to take my picture in the cowl as she wanted to make one herself. She sent me the photo. She was making me laugh telling me how much she loved my smile. What a great compliment.

The Woolike yarn from Michaels was on sale when I bought it for $2 a skein. It's turned out to be quite a bargain for such a soft, cozy and easy to work with yarn. Big thank you to cckittenknits for this beautiful cowl pattern. Cckittenknits shares a story on her blog regarding the making of one of these open tuck cowls and it's a fun read for machine knitters.
