A new cowl in my store, just in time for the first few real days of Autumn.
This has always been my favourite time of year. The trees have all finally turned now. The mornings are crisp, the nights are early, and the afternoon air is rich with the scent of woodsmoke. It is the one time of year that Armidale really makes up for being so far from the sea.
This cowl was an entirely spontaneous creation, from yarn purchase to bind-off. The finished product is lovelier than I could ever have hoped. It's incredibly warm and versatile. The design is ideal for someone who (like me) feels claustrophobic in neck-hugging scarves. I am eager to create more in different colourways.
