Memorandum Monday

Memorandum Monday is the brainchild of fellow CT member Sian. Her premise is delightful: On Monday, tell something you did over the weekend FOR THE FIRST TIME. Or something you learned and DIDN'T KNOW BEFORE.

I like it.

 This weekend I finally finished my Scoreboard Cowl, all 7 and 1/2 feet of it. Whew! The last step was binding together the two ends of the open tube using a technique called Kitchener In The Round. I've closed plenty of sock toes using the Kitchener stitch, but never joined and closed a tube. So I sat down Saturday evening to do just that.

 A few hours later, (I'm not a fast knitter) here is the result. Very warm and cozy. Just in time for the Arctic temperatures we're having this week.

My husband and I have agreed to share it. Whoever is shoveling snow gets to wear it. I'm glad it fits him too, as I am not fond of shoveling snow. Happy Monday!


  1. It's looking really good! And I'm very interested in you "new thing" because I have been using this stitch to close the toes of my socks but I haven't tried it in the round. I bet it's very satisfying.

    Have a great week Sue

  2. Clever you - sharing it with him. Was that an afterthought or the plan all along? Maybe you'd rather not say.

  3. Love your reasons for sharing...brilliant thinking! xx

  4. looks gorgeous on both of you x

  5. Oh that does look cozy . . . although I hope I don't need one of those anytime soon! LOL

  6. Good idea to let him wear it while he shovels snow... very generous!
