It has been a crazy week, but I did finish and block Wildwood.     I did not succeed in taking a picture of myself wearing it  (my few attempts were so bad that I immediately deleted them to ensure that no one else would ever see them), so you get to see it lying flat:

I blocked it to 10" in diameter, which wind up just the right size.  

The pattern was great fun, and a charming design.  I really like the way the leaves flow organically out from the center.  The yarn is Wandering Cat Yarns Top Cat DK (Merino/Cashmere/Nylon) in Wheat Field, and was lovely and soft and a delight to knit.  Thank you, Valerie!


  1. So pretty! Can't wait till you get someone to photograph it on you and share it with us.

  2. It looks great! It's a surprisingly quick knit - I think it's all those leaves - they just make the knitting fly.

    1. I love the way the leaves flow out of one another so symmetrically- as soon as I grasped the flow of it, the pattern was very easy to follow.
