Finished Glacier Park Cowl (aka the friendship cowl)

A few weeks ago, my friend Molly and I finished our mini Knit-A-Long (KAL) with our Glacier Park Cowls, which was such a fun project! We each chose two colors of Woolfolk Tynd (the softest yarn imaginable) and cast on for this KAL after taking a colorwork class on Craftsy, which I wrote about more in this post about the class project. (That class is worth every penny, by the way).

It was an engaging and rather meditative knit. I knit a lot of it on the plane rides to and from Minnesota, and at coffee shops. And it was so fun to knit it with another knitter. We finally got around to taking some pictures of us wearing our cowls this past weekend, when the weather was appropriate cowl weather, so it feels like I can consider the project truly "done."

The finished piece is so snuggly and soft, and surprisingly warm for how lightweight it is. The blues feel perfectly like "me" too.

2020: A year in review

Now that we're well into January, I'm sitting down to write and glance back at the last year. I'm not much of a resolution-maker (not fundamentally opposed, just not for me), but I do find it's healthiest for my heart and mind to reflect and then continue on into the next year. Like every single year, there are good, hard, and in-between snippets and seasons.

Sour beginnings

I did it. I hopped aboard the sourdough train. I've made exactly one loaf of sourdough in my life, once last year, just a few months before we moved across the country from Texas to Indiana. I've long been interested in fermented foods, and tried my hand at a few, namely, kombucha, yogurt, and sauerkraut. And sourdough has been one on the want to try again list. Necessity is the mother of invention, right?
