I’ve been so focussed on Christmas that autumn is slipping by unnoticed. From knitting up chunky scarves and hats (to be posted) and working on Christmas wreaths (to come), I realised that I needed something lighter to suit the current weather. So here’s my new scarf design – ultra easy.
I used chunky yarn, cast on 200 stitches on size 5mm needles, and knit one row. I changed to size 6mm needles and carried on in garter stitch until I was almost out of yarn – just enough to attach the frills. And then I attached the frill. I like the way it doesn’t just fall flat but has a natural curve. This makes it very versatile as it hugs your body – wear it high or low or just tied.
In the meanwhile, I also succumbed to the owl pouch pattern. I just made a little one to hold my stitch counters.
So now that I’ve got that out of my system, I can return to sanity and to the other stuff going on. Apart from work, it’s my son’s 13th birthday this weekend and his coming of age has hit me hard. I’ve also moved my wool room to a different part of the house and it’s been a huge upheaval. I’m hoping that I will be able to sort everything out over the next couple of weeks.
Hope you’re having a good week.
