  My mother knitted this masterpiece over thirty years ago. It is a prized possession. 
 I'll let the pictures do the talking.

The shawl that I've used as a background for this page is just one of the many she's knitted for family and friends in the last few years. This one's from last summer.

Cowls. What a lovely word.
Anagram of scowl.
A hundred (C) added to owls.

I stopped playing with the word, and started knitting them this year.

Thanks to a mother for being my teacher, and to a daughter for keeping me in needles from 000 onwards!
Thanks to another mother for teaching me how to take good pictures and post them on my blogs!

Here are three cowls featured on my 'mannequin' for three lovely ladies.

 Gift wrapped and ready to go! Hope they'll like them!
And this is another lovely mother, wearing the first cowl I ever knitted.
