Day by Day - Stitch by Stitch

Toolbox Cowl
December 2023

It seems that in my absence I’ve reconnected with my knitting mojo. Several months ago, I found and purchased two bags of wool yarn at the thrift shop. One was $3; the other, $4, a reasonable price for mystery yarn. 

Since the colors coordinated fairly well, I cast on a Tool Box Cowl (pattern by adventure DuJour Designs). It’s an easy knit that uses the Diamond Tweed Stitch to blend the colors.

I’m still dealing with back pain and a frustrating obstacle involving my pacemaker. I’m seeing a new doctor next week and pray that he will be able to proceed with the nerve ablation. Until then, I’ll continue to take each day and each stitch at a time.

  14. Hi Nancy. New visitor to your blog. I am a high school teacher living in the Salt Lake City area. My husband lived in Laramie for a while year ago. I love your thrift store find of all that yard for a bargain price! Great colors on the cowl. I hope that your doctor can help you feel better. One-day-at-a-time is always a great idea. See you again soon!
