Lulu Letty: DIY: Hand Knit Bow and Neck Warmer

DIY: Hand Knit Bow and Neck Warmer

I finally finished my little knitting project- a simple neck warmer and a gigantic bow in my favorite color!

DIY: Hand Knit Bow and Neck Warmer

So, I forgot to tell you about my Friday night. I went out with Cole to a few mba events at UofM, one being a mock awards ceremony. Cole was nominated for several very random categories, but he won the most fitting...Arrested for Business Crimes. That's my husband, the future felon. ;) Plus, he received an actual trophy with a creepy baby on it.
After the awards, we danced and drank a bit too much. I don't go out very often, but when I do I make the most of it. Which means I danced like a fool in front of Cole's classmates. Oh, well.

And yesterday, the lovely Tye, of Lagelle Handmade, let me know that I was featured on Etsy's front page. I have never had the honor before and it was quite wonderful. Plus, I was grouped with some great nautical items. Thank you Etsy!

Loving the neck warmer and bow! Have you thought of knitting hats with big bows of them? Just planting a seed....

Glad that you had fun with Cole's school buddies. I'm sure that they were all having just as much fun as you were so they didn't notice you!
