Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

As the snow softy falls, and the snow drifts slowly grow, I watch the trees grow from my needles. The Snowy Woods Cowl by PDXKnitterati is a cowl knit in the round with interlaced trees popped out in purl stitches.  I used madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in Fallen Cloud.  The soft gray with hints of blue and cream remind me of New England winter skies.

The Snowy Woods Cowl is inspired by Robert Frostโ€™s poem, โ€œStopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other soundโ€™s the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.
