Meandering

October 25, 2016 ~ Post 180
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.

Twins
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.

BOO!

Have a safe and a Happy Hallowe'en!
