Mixing it up!

Instead of my usual birthday give-away, this year I decided to do one for Christmas instead! We got some great pictures on the beach last night that I can't show you because it's a MYSTERY! :D

Here's the pattern page photo and description - more details here.

A Christmas present from me to you! This is such a busy time of year for those of us celebrating the holidays and we usually end up neglecting ourselves while decorating, cooking, and shopping for everyone else. Starting on December 18, I challenge you to take an hour or so of time for yourself each day! The pattern will be updated daily for a week and will finish up on Christmas Eve. After Christmas all the individual pdfs will be replaced with a single pdf. It’s free until December 18 (EST) when the first bit goes out. In the meantime, you can download the planning sheet which includes gauge, materials, and abbreviations.
What is it? A huge cozy cowl/sort-of-poncho with an interesting construction that can be worn in several ways. Nothing difficult - just knitting, purling, decreasing, and simple short rows (no picking up wraps). Everything is fully explained so you can just sit in your favorite spot with your favorite beverage and enjoy a little time for yourself.
This is a mystery but it isn’t a KAL; there are no rules to follow, no prizes to win, nothing to stress about, just relaxing knitting and a warm present for you! I hope that seeing the end result will be like opening a gift so I won’t post a photo until after Christmas. There is a thread in my group where you can ask questions.
Merry Christmas everyone!
