Autumn Sky Cowl Progress

Autumn Fires Cowl 0021

This is my Autumn Sky cowl design knitted in Manos del Uruguay yarn, Ethnosphere Maxima. I did post about this cowl last week but disaster struck as I was casting off.  I realised that it was going to be slightly small and I just wasn’t happy with that. You know how you try and tell yourself that it will actually be fine, because pulling out all this knitting is sad and then somewhere in the back of your mind, you just know you have to fix it,  so I FROGGED it. I then cast on again,  altered the pattern a little, went up a needle size and now I am much happier with it! It’s almost finished and then I will open the pattern up for test knitting. I still really love the colourway of this yarn and will be buying more of it, it’s so soft too.

Joining with Ginny for the Yarn Along today and Tamis WIP Wednesday.

    I am loving that yarn- those yellow and gray colors- ! I know that feeling- when you’re knitting along and have a sneaking suspicion that this isn’t going to work! good for you for being brave, ripping it out and starting over to make what you really want!

      I feel so much better now that it’s almost finished.

    I know your heart must have sunk when you realized you had to start over, but at least you had more knitting time. 🙂 It’s really pretty Linda and I bet it feels amazing.

    Boo on the frogging, but it really is a gorgeous colourway and we all know (really) that sometimes the frogging has to happen and start over! I do love that you are moving into Autumn and are using autumnal colours whilst we’re moving into Spring 🙂

    Love those colors! I know how hard it is to frog, but your patience and perseverance paid off!

    Come visit me!

    Sorry about the frogging, BUT the cowl will be 100% the way you love it.

    Love the cowl. The colors of the yarn are gorgeous and I think the stitch pattern really makes them pop.

    Your cowl is gorgeous and totally worth the rip and reknit.

    Love the colors!

    I think it’s better to re-knit and have a project you’re happy with rather than have a finished product you never use, because you don’t like it. The yarn looks completely gorgeous.

    Oh, I had to laugh – we have all been there. Sometimes my husband thinks I am nuts when I rip something out. You keep thinking…”This will work. It wouldn’t be so bad”….and then…urgh. But it is absolutely beautiful. I have yarn that wants to become that cowl!

    Such beautiful colours, hope it works out right this time!

    It is very nice and the colorway is gorgeous. Too bad you had to frog the 1st one. I do understand, you look at it, rationalize, know it’s not right and rippit…rippit! Hugs!

    The yarn is so beautiful that I can understand wanting the final piece to be perfect. i have already started looking locally for the yarn because I like the colorway so much.

    Manos del Uruguay yarn is the most beautiful yarn to work with…Glad you had the nerve to redo it so you are happy because it looks gorgeous.

    I know that feeling soo well as well and I do the same too 🙂 I love the colours n the yarn looks oh so soft

    Frogging is a wonderful teaching and learning tool – she says after frogging a total of 10 rows on an afghan – and each row took almost 30 minutes to knit. Yes, 5 hours of knitting.

    Your colors are wonderful – that yarn is what I used to make a scarf for a friend in NY. He liked it so much that when he went to China on business, he had a coat made to match the scarf.

    Special hugs and thank you for sharing so much of yourself.

    Linda, that yarn looks scrumptious! And I hear ya on the grim resolve to frog a project. I’m so glad you’re happy with the second take.

  20. karen April 11, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    oh no, frogging? Well I’m glad you are much happier with this version . The yarn is lovely and the stitch design is a great way to showcase the colors in the yarn!

    That makes me feel better– I have done that with a completed project myself. Knit what makes you happy

    Hello Bud

    All your lovely cowls are putting my three row, one year on the needles scarf to shame… A lovely pattern and gorgeous colour yarn. Lit our fire today. Really has been nippy. Love the Pic of Richie in the tree house. Wondered what all that banging was.. From my view, Its an enviable little house that.

    Happy night

    Still loving this colorway, and your pattern sits so prettily on this lusciousness
