crochet thursday - the boerum warmer

i finally got around to taking a few images of my completed boerum warmer cowl to share with you. the pattern is by hooks & halos and it's super easy and fun to make. i used the recommended yarn - lion brand wool-ease thick & quick in citron - and loved how fast the process went using the combination of bulky yarn and larger size "N" hook. 

this cowl is amazingly soft and comfortable and all kinds of roomy. it's also pretty gorgeous - i feel like it really adds a lot of texture and visual interest to an outfit and it's lightweight & comfy enough to keep on indoors. the boerum warmer is quickly becoming a staple in my winter wardrobe and it just makes me so pleased to be learning new stitches as well as more about different mixtures, textures and personalities of yarn. it's been quite a wonderful discovery and i can't stress enough what a great relaxation tool crocheting has been for me - it really sets my mind at ease to be crocheting away while listening to music and sipping on hot tea. i can't think of a better winter past time or way to spend a quiet afternoon!
