In the round, around town, with one foot on the ground . . .

Can you knit in the round? Can you knit around town? Can you knit with only one foot on the ground? If so, my entertaining friend Kathy suggests cowls as the perfect quick Christmas knit.

Coincidentally, I've just finished up a cowl myself.  This one isn't a Christmas gift, but I may make a few more for Christmas gifting.

Cast On: 12 November 2008
Completed: 20 November 2008
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted - Intenso
Needles:  Addi Natura US8 (5mm)

So yes, I can knit in the round. I can (and did) knit this cowl around town.  I'm sure I could even knit with one foot on the ground.  But Kathy, here's what I want to know.  Can you knit while hanging upside-down???

I just knit one of those, too!!! Mine rolls a bit when actually wearing it but it works pretty well to keep the chill off of my neck...

Can't knit upside down - all the blood rushing to your cranium would cause the instructions to blur and you'd be frogging from now until the middle of next week.

I cannot knit them upside down.
I cannot knit them into a crown
I knit them only round and round
To this technique Im clearly bound!

BUt your birthday cowl is one to astound,
Yours is the best one ever found!

I'm becoming addicted to cowls, as I lack the attention span to finish scarves (not to mention that I was nearly strangled by a scarf once...just call me 'graceful'). This one is a beauty, K!

And, looks like it was a super quick knit as well.
