You're a Sweet Kid Ellen!

Ellen's not really a kid. I just thought that was good title because the cowl Ellen is wearing is made from a yarn from Berlini (Italy) named Sweet Kid. It's 72% kid mohair and 28% nylon. A dream to knit! I found the pattern (named Whisper by Amy Micallef) in Knit & Wrap by Nathalie Mornu. It's a nice book and has lots of patterns for cowls, collars, wraps and the like. This cowl is as light as a whisper. And...the jewels are Swarovski crystals!

I finished the cowl on Monday and seeing it was such a lovely afternoon (and I was off work because it was the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday) I thought I should take Ellen on a photo shoot so we would have something to show you tonight. Ellen thought the bright colours really suited her! The warm neck was an added bonus!

We went to St. John's to Southside Road, which is across the Harbour from Harbour Drive. In some of the pictures you can see the historic Cabot Tower on Signal Hill, the houses on Signal Hill Road, the Signal Hill Walking Trail and the fishing boats at the marina. Lots of seagulls around and a few crows.
