The design that I showed you a snippet of in my last blog post is this:
This is my Maple Leaves Cowl, which is part of the KnitCircus Fall Collection 2015. You can check out all the designs in the lookbook on the KnitCircus website. You can purchase the pattern for this cowl on Ravelry.
The cowl is completely reversible, with a different design on the other side.
It was made using a combination of a gradient and a kettle-dyed semi-solid yarn. You can purchase kits to make the cowl from KnitCircus. (As I write this I see that they are out of stock on the kits, but I’m sure they’ll be back with more yarn soon.)
This is a design that looks a lot more difficult than it really is to knit so if you are a colorwork newbie, don’t be intimidated. It’s a fun project and goes pretty quickly.

My Cormo Cardi
I’m making good progress on the cardi I’ve been working on. The body is done. I attached the shoulder via a three-needle bind-off.
And I picked up 378 stitches around the fronts and the neck and am slogging through a lot of 2×2 ribbing. There’ll be a total of 4″ of it, and I currently have less than 2″, so I have a way to go.
I also started a sleeve.
