Well after frogging this cowl almost twice, I am very happy with how it turned out. The circumference is perfect and I am so glad I didn’t leave it after the first attempt or I would have never been happy with it. I have decided to call it Autumn Sky because the colourway reminds me of our autumn skies at sunset, here at the moment. I love this Manos yarn and the colourway is JUST amazing!!! The teal blue emerging and spreading through the burnt orange and various browns is gorgeous.
This cowl has been knitted in Manos del Uruguay Ethnosphere Maxima yarn, a worsted yarn. I used 1 skein of the Manos yarn and 6mm circular needles.
Now that I have finished knitting it, I would really love to have it test knitted, I have 10 spaces available for test knitters. If you would like to test knit the Autumn Sky cowl pattern, just let me know by sending me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our girls are away for a Scout Kontiki weekend, I think there are over 500 scouts attending, they are building rafts and will stay on the rafts overnight. Jen and Erin are part of a large safety crew that will be on duty ensuring that all the scouts on the rafts stay on board and don’t end up in the water during the night. It’s been rainy and cold here, so I hope tonight is a little warmer for them. They have been been looking forward to this weekend for months!
Have a wonderful weekend, off to spend some time with my love, it’s our anniversary today.
PS I’m so happy you like the photo linky for Creative Friday in the previous post, I thought I would try it instead of just the links and it seems to have worked well:)
