Fall 2012 Photo Shoot

Since I’ve moved to a new city and my sister has gone off to college, JJCrochet has needed to find a new model.  Thankfully, my new friends are GORGEOUS. A couple knit cowls, a few crochet hats.  Patterns and project details coming soon!

A Saturday morning visit with an armful of crochet and knitted items and there you have it – new pictures for the site.  Thank you, friend for being a lovely model!  Which project do you like best for fall?

Crochet Cowls – Cyber Monday Sale

I went home for Thanksgiving break.  It was lovely.  Food, family, friends, and photos of cowls (“photos” kinda works in the alliteration sequence, no?  Maybe not, ha.)  With all the yarn I purchased on Black Friday, I got busy and made some crocheted and knit cowls.

My baby sister agreed to model for me, but the weather didn’t quite cooperate today so we had to shoot inside.  Oh well – I think the pics still turned out great.

But here comes the exciting part for you!  I love crocheted and knitted cowls (I think that much is obvious), but all these cowls do me no good – I need to share them!

And this sharing ties in perfectly with Cyber Monday.  Soooo, as part of JJCrochet’s Cyber Monday Sale, you can pick up any of JJCrochet’s cowls for 25% off.  Yay!  This offer is only valid now through Monday, November 28th at11:59pm EST.

Use Code: CYBERCOWL25 at JJCrochet’s Etsy shop to save.  Seriously, these cowls will never go this much on sale for the rest of the year, so stock up now.  (And if you’re feeling extra generous, buy some for your friends, too – they make great gifts!)

I’m partial to the third one – the cream chunky-knit cream cowl, but they’re all great in their different ways. Which one’s your favorite?

Cowls & Cousins

So if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a “cowl kick” recently.  I love them.  The chunkier, the better.

With fall gearing up and my love of cowls in full swing, I couldn’t help but stock up on lots of cowl-making yarn tonight (like I need more skeins for my stash). 38 skeins to be exact.


Woops. 🙂

Most of this yarn will be turned into cowls and I think that warrants a FREE CROCHET COWL GIVEAWAY (posting about that next) WOO!

The family was also over for Thanksgiving which means for the first time in a while, I’ve had live models!  A few of my younger cousins and my sister (a JJCrochet regular), were kind enough to model a few cowls for me.  Unfortunately, all the eating slowed us down and we didn’t quite beat the setting sun, but we were able to get a few shots in.

I’m still undecided whether or not these wonderful winter scarves can jump across the gender gap.  What’s your vote… Can guys wear crochet cowls??
