Roses, cream, and yardage
So, in my blog post about starting work on getting down from designing to creating this cowl. Not much to update, other than that one skein of Debbie Bliss BFL Aran (75m/82 yds) apparently makes just under 10 motifs. (9 motifs, with the 10th missing only the final two sc rounds.) It also withstands surprisingly well to frogging, as I discovered with the first square- I ripped it out at least 6 times- and that was just the first two rounds- and despite catching on the loose skin on my fingers and slight shedding, as wool is wont to do, it retained its "newness." Hopefully it'll block just as well!
