calling all cowl lovers

I should be home right now.
However, I took my annual trip out west and decided to spend an extra day in San Francisco with a great friend. (That's Noreen!)
We did a bunch of fun stuff which of course included a trip to ImagiKnit. Allison couldn't be nicer... oh, how I love knitters.
Of course, a bazillion photos where taken of the city and the bridge. (And everything in between.)
I mentioned I would be talking about this fantastic book. Unfortunately, since I am en-route, I have no other photos than this to show you. (Sorry!) I can tell you that there are a bunch of cute cowls in this book. (Forty to be exact.) They range from quick and easy on chunky yarns to a little more advanced with intricate designs on finer yarns. Some are knit in the round, some back and forth. Lace, cables, striped. Really, a cowl for every cowl lover.
If you are interested in receiving a copy please leave me a comment between now and September 27th at 12 p.m. EST and I will have the random generator draw a name.
Happy Weekend!
