FO – Autumn Blaze LunaBy
Firstly an update on my Etsy sale – I was unavoidably delayed, and the sale actually went on at 1:15 instead of noon – my apologies to everyone! Head on over and check it out!
In knitterly news, I’ve finally finished my Luna Viridis cowl by Hillary Smith Callis and I’ve got to say I absolutely LOVE this cowl. I knitted it up in a skein of TFA OOAK blue label called ‘Autumn Blaze’ that was gifted to me by Rayna. The stitch definition is perfect for the piece.
It’s kind of a nifty construction – you work flat as though building a semi-circular scarf and then join in the round to knit the cowl. This is how I blocked mine – with the result that my cowl came out with a point at the front and back that was not intended by the original design.
It doesn’t bug me one bit – I actually really like the result. I’m already craving another one – possibly in Indigodragonfly, I’ve got a gorgeous sea green silk blend that would be perfect!
In the meantime I’m happily rocking the reds =D
I really like your work..keep it up….best regards…
If you like cowls that look like shawlettes, check out Zuzu’s Petals (I think it’s a Carina Spencer!). It’s been on my list to make for as long as I can remember and someone gave me the pattern as a gift a few years ago.
beautiful! I love the stitch design on it :)
