My aunt and I had our monthly coffee date yesterday, so I was able to give my first gift of the season to her in person. The first drawstring lace cowl that I made was for her daughter-in-law, and she really liked it, so I filed it away somewhere in my brain and am quite pleased that I remembered to knit her one in time for Christmas. I used Vickie Howell's Sheep(ish) again, but in Plum(ish) this time.
The pom-poms are my favorite part, but I told my aunt to cut them off if they weren't "her." It's still quite cute on even without the drawstring at all.
