Honey Cowl

The air is slightly less humid, the leaves are green with tinges of yellow, and I still haven't had to pack away my flip flops for good; Hooray!  It's autumn in Virginia!

I have been obsessed with this Madelinetosh colorway since I first laid eyes on it.  It's called gilded, and it's a beautifully bright orange that screams 'autumn'.  Every time I went into Finch, I would pick it up and contemplate buying it.  And then finally one day I went in specifically to get it, and it was sold out. (#knittersproblems)  So I ordered a skein online via Mr. Yarn.  I definitely knew I wanted to make a honey cowl with this year after seeing Angela's shop sample at Finch.  Gorgeous.

I've come to learn that tosh yarns are a dream to knit with, so I plan on buying more soon.  Although maybe not too soon if I do indeed decide to splurge on a Bernina tomorrow...

Pattern: Honey Cowl
Mods: Used a size 6 circular.

  1. Oh man, I am dreaming of a sweater in any Madelinetosh yarn, but I don't know if the bank will let me take out a small loan to be able to finance it! Someday. Good luck with your (possible) sewing machine purchase! It was a lot of money to spend, but I've never once regretted buying my Bernina!

  2. Your blog is good for all. Your blog style and sewing style is very good. Keep sharing and posting
