Rustic Earth Cowl Design in Progress

I have been enjoying designing this new cowl pattern, I’ve called it Rustic Earth, it’s almost finished, I think it will probably be completed later today:) It’s a design that I hope will drape beautifully around the neck with undulating folds of softness…  I’ll block it, take photos and share the pattern early next week.

We are finally having rain, it’s been so hot for SO long, the rain is such a welcome gift! We are also settling back into our schooling for the first term and a lovely rhythm has begun. I will soon be designing more animal patterns and seriously putting all my energy into my African Animals Knitting book. What are you busy working on at the moment?

    Hi Linda, good to hear that you are all well and getting back into the home ed rhythm. We are still in holiday mode but they are drawing to a close and February will see us back at lessons!
    I’ve linked here with a post I did on Monday (actually the only post I’ve done all week!!) because I really wanted to share the most gorgeous party vibe and fairy delights! It wasn’t my doing but a lovely friend and her daughter who put a lot of work into making an unforgettable day for the birthday girl, her granddaughter. I just attended, took photo’s and relaxed!
    I’m never sure if thats ok, or do I need to do a special creative post on Friday? Coz as you know creativity can strike any day… or night!!!
    New year hugs to you and yours – Ev

    I really love the natural colours of your cowl, and it’s looking lovely. Thank you for the link up, I’ve added a post about my latest animal, a Jersey Cow, he’s been a while in the making!

    I love that cowl – the colours are perfect and it just looks so snuggly. It’s certainly a snuggly day here – the snow is coming down like crazy and we have a severe weather warning!!!

    The colors in your cowl are just beautiful, and it looks so soft too.

    Beautiful yarn! And it looks like it will be a fabulously cozy cowl.

  12. Susan January 18, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

    That cowl is going to be gorgeous! So fuzzy and cozy!

    Beautiful cowl! Perfect name, too. I’m working on a newborn sweater to coordinate with her big sister’s sweater – they are my granddaughters’ cousins. The pattern is written so badly, I’ve already had to start over once! Guess I’ll be more careful choosing a pattern next time!!

    Your cowl looks lovely! I’m still afraid to block my first ever shawl…it’s done and I just need to get up the guts to do it! Thanks for hosting!

    The cowl is beautiful. The colors remind me of sunsets I have seen. What is the yarn and how do I buy some?

    • Linda January 20, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

      Thank you Barbara:) I bought this roving from Juno Fibre Arts on Etsy and my daughter spun it into yarn for me.
      Take care

    Elegant work, as usual. Lovely colorway, as usual. We are still freezing – as usual. The fog sheds little frost bits that skitter like diamond snow and fill all the air with this beautiful freezing. I am cross and hard to get along with. There is not a place, except where I am sitting now, where the cold does not find a way to pierce the spirit and the skin. But I believe in Spring, yet – and yearn for it. I’m willing to wait – but hope someone turns up the valley’s thermostat just another ten degrees –
