My hand knitted cowls

I've decided that this Christmas is going to be a truly handmade Christmas for me. I have made something for each family member from slippers, to scarves, hats and now these cowls. Which I an sending to my family in Canada.

Hand knitted on 6.5mm circular needles using James Brett yarn.
Cast on 150 stitches and work 4 rows in stocking stitch then 4 rows in reverse stocking stitch. 
I knitted a total of 7 "4 row" blocks, then cast off.
Secure all ends, give it a little pull and viola your done .
I made all 3 in just under a weekend.
the pink/purple ones are for my little nieces so I reduce the stitches to 120
I nearly kept one for myself - but I can make one in the New Year.

Over the next few days I will be making my final gifts (fingers cross or its an emergency dash for late night shopping)
