(Almost) Winter warmers

It's the first slightly chillier weekend here, so I was really pleased to have finished my Cowl (based on crochet-lacy-scarf by Lion Brand Yarn) to wear while watching my eldest play Netball this morning. I wanted a looser Cowl style but a more vintage look to it so this scarf pattern was a pretty good fit and I just continued until it was the right length then joined at the back. Very happy with it, its so snuggly and soft in Harmony 100% Merino wool.

I've also crocheted a flower for this dress (Tikki Rainbow Dress) that I made last year. I knitted it for my youngest daughter but being the tomboy that she is she won't wear it - argh!!! So I thought a wee flower will jazz it up and then maybe I'll think about selling it (if I can bear to let it go as I LOVE it).... 

Anyway off to make some soup now. That's one real good part of colder weather.
