FO Friday: Cowl Party!

A while back, I was working on a Berlin Cowl in Baah Shasta worsted for myself, and then it mysteriously disappeared from mention on this blog. What happened, you ask? Deadline knitting relegated it to the hibernation pile. After the dust of TNNA settled, I was able to pick it back up and finish knitting it at last. Please pardon the goofy smile, I was a bit silly at yesterday's photo shoot.
I'm very excited about this FO because it's one of my favorite designs that I've released recently; also, this cowl is for me to keep. Oh joy! 
My other FO is something that I've actually been done with for quite some time - I just couldn't find the right buttons! On a whim, I decided to visit The Needle Shop in North Center on my way to the Windy City Knitting Guild meeting earlier this week, and there I found the perfect buttons....and then some!
Adding to my button stash....
Here I am squinting into the sun and trying to smile whilst wearing my North Hollow Cowl in Extra, the lovely new yarn from Blue Sky Alpacas (I definitely will be knitting with this more in the future!). I'm not sure why I thought this was a good idea, taking the photo in direct sunlight without sunglasses, but sometimes I insist on doing things like this for no good reason. It's just how I roll.
Here is a close-up of the beautiful mismatched buttons I bought:
Aren't they absolutely perfect?!

I will definitely have to go back to The Needle Shop to purchase some fabric, since they had an awesome selection!

Thanks for stopping by this week - for FO Friday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis blog.

Have a crafty weekend!
