My wonderfully talented sister in law was visiting last weekend from Tampa.  She knits, she crochets, she sews, she smocks, she embroiders, she can do anything!  All I had to do was just mention that my daughter wanted a certain hat that she had seen on ETSY.  The ETSY owner wasn't offering to sell the pattern.  So, my sister in law just came up with her own pattern - here is the chunky slouchy hat that my daughter wanted.  My sister in law knitted it while they were driving up from Tampa.  Beautiful, huh? Note to self - send my sister in law a photo of what I want for Christmas!

Here is what I have on my needles.  It's another Shawl Colored Cowl.  I wore mine to our favorite restaurant, Izumi, the other night and the owner asked me to knit one for her.  She wanted black with little sparkles in it.  I found the perfect yarn at The Whole Nine Yarns in downtown Woodstock, GA.

You can see it has just the right amount of sparkle.  Not too gaudy.  I found some little crystal buttons and will post a photo once it is blocked.
