Happy Labor Day Weekend Everybody!

Speaking of labor I have been working on knitted cowls for the last three weeks. I now have five made all similar in size and color. Why you ask? Let me start from the beginning and I’ll try to make it fast. It all started when I was preparing dinner one evening, cutting   beets and yams into slices for a side dish. I thought they looked pretty together.

Cut slices of beets and yams cook in butter and olive oil. Simmer until soft. I didn't use any seasoning. Cool and serve.

The colors looked awesome and when cooked they became even richer in color. I remembered that I had some left over yarn that looked similar. That’s when I created an easy cowl that I named Side Dish.

Since I used remnants to make the cowl I don't remember the name or brand of yarn. If your interested I'll try my best to find out. Leave a comment.

Now to keep the story going I took my cowl to a friend and showed her what I made. She loved it and is in the middle of changing the flower shop (her work place) into fall colors and told me if I made more of them she could display them. She believes there are customers who would enjoy them. So to finish this story I will be placing my labored work as a consignment in a cute local business named Flower Club. Thanks Rainy.

Sometimes things work in the most silliest of ways. Do you have an inspirational story to share with us? If so please leave a comment I loved to hear it.

Till then Happy Knitting!

About doublepointedlove

My domain name doublepointedlove derived from my love of knitting. My first knit project was a pair of socks for my husband in which I had to use 5 DOUBLEPOINTED needles. If you ever worked with them it’s quite intimidating. I was determined to make these socks and when I finished I fell in LOVE. Now since then I have created scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters, whatever I could. I did this for many years and wanted to try something new. Now I’m creating paper flowers for photo backdrops and crepe paper flowers for bouquets. Hot glue burns and paper cuts are now my reality. I have made this my full time job and enjoy every second. And though my focus has changed since I started with this domain name I won’t change it because, it reminds me of how my love of art started from a set of double pointed needles!
