Somehow this hasn’t been the best of summers this year. So no wonder I’m already in the mood to make scarves and cowls. Remember the cowl I was working on a few weeks ago. It is finished and I’ve written the pattern.
I really love the way all the different colours blend and make a harmonious piece. I called this pattern “Sissinghurst Garden”. Why? Because Vita Sackville-West was the first woman, to create gardens based on colour. She did that on her estate “Sissinghurst” and they are still open to visit. Because the outcome of this pattern is completely determined by the colours used, and because of all the flowers in the pattern, I thought this would be a great name.
Right now I’m testing the pattern I’ve written, and this time I’m using green shades. Only green shades, so it is becoming a completely different kind of cowl. I hope to finish it this week, and to have the pattern in the shop in time to be able to finish a cowl before fall starts and it gets colder.
