mermaids in cowls
I worry that people are insufficiently roused to knitting cowls. What they need is: more cow(l)bell. (Sorry.) More oddly styled season-inappropriate photos of winter neckwear!
These shots were taken over Labor Day weekend. We had the cowls.
We had the cowl models.
(We had the terrier. See under photographer's arm.)
We didn't have the cowl weather.
We had to think fast. We had to be open to possibilities.

P.S. Throwback Thursday, or #tbt, is a thing on Instagram and Twitter where you post old pictures on Thursdays. I am a frequent and enthusiastic participant. Really would like to see more knitters on Instagram. I follow a ton of knitters and I still find myself wishing for more knitting to look at. If you're new to Instagram (c'mon! you know you want to!) and wondering who to follow, one place to start would be, of course ME (@kaygardiner), and of course YOU (@annshayne), and also to get busy and follow all the knitters we follow. The knitterly eye is adventurous. This is really a worthwhile expenditure of tiny bits of time when you don't have anything else to do, or you do but you don't wanna.
