I am Deborah. I am fortunate to be able to spend my days doing the things I love most in life: knitting, sewing, designing, cooking, baking, reading and writing. I am trying to learn, with an open mind, as much as I can from this life without having to repeat my mistakes or the mistakes of my parents.
Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
My husband saw me knitting this cowl and said, "That reminds me of those licorice candies we had as kids." I agreed, so he looked up the name of those candies. They are "All sorts." Dumb name. So I thought they looked like black-eyed Peeps (those marshmallow things you get at Easter). Also lame. Then, I was knitting at our local coffee shop and 4-yr old Zia walked by and said, That looks like a pink Cheetah." Bingo! Thank you, Zia, for the perfect name!
The cowl looks doubleknit, but it is not. You can make it as long as you want. Join for a cowl. Twist and join for a moebius cowl, or just add fringe to the ends for a scarf. Very easy colorwork and, best of all, the inside won't show so NO FLOATS!
