I steamed block my Flora Cowl because I wanted to wear it this past weekend.   Later, I will  wet block it.  However, a steamer, which I don't own, would have worked wonders.  I do like how the leaf sections in the pattern add texture.

I did knit a beret awhile ago that is almost the same colour as the cowl. So much so that, luckily, I can wear them together.
I loved how this pattern meandered along. Since it's not that wide, it was easy and quite quick to knit a section. I'd like to knit another cowl like this using a different pattern, or maybe I'll get inventive and fashion one of my own.  Raverly project page here.

* The Flora Cowl comes from the first issue of  the Making magazine. I am thinking of knitting a hat  from the magazine and there are great sweater patterns in the first issue too.

And a few more colourful fall pics...

An orange Sumac. Usually they turn red.
So many berries for the birds. Good! These ones are especially beautiful.

Crab Apples on the drawing board.

A feast for the eye.

Next, a few pics from Pumpkin Inferno. What a spectacular show!  The pictures could be clearer but it was scary and dark. Excuses, excuses.  ;-) Actually, these pics are from last year. I  hope to go this weekend.


Have a safe and a Happy Hallowe'en!
