Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Finished cowl & Hagrid socks

I finished the Shawl Collared Cowl.

Now all I have to do is find buttons.

I am very happy with this cowl.  I won't have to pull it over my head.  It is very soft! (baby alpaca).  And I think it will be just enough around my neck for the cool mornings this fall.

The yarn called for is Misti Alpaca Chunky (which I do not have) so I substituted  Cascade Pure Alpaca.  It is a worsted weight yarn but I got gauge so I went with it.

More info found on my ravelry page.

And I finished (can't remember if I posted about it) Hagrid's Motorcycle Socks.  Mystery solved!

Love, love, love, these socks!!  It is a great pattern, easy, and works up quickly.

More info found here.

Now to wind up some yarn for Gringott's Goblin Socks.
