Would you believe that I have been knitting since I was a teenager and yet, until this year, I had never knitted an ordinary scarf? The closest I had come was knitting a lace shawl.
While working at Calico & Ivy, I fell in love with the variegated Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino yarn. My husband bought me four skeins of it for Christmas, and I knitted them up by February. It is only recently, however, that it has become chilly enough to wear scarves. After this week’s cold weather, I remembered to pull my new scarf out of the cupboard, and it might get its first outing this week.
We have had a very cold and rainy weekend. It was not a weekend for taking photos in the sunshine – it was a weekend for making soup, staying indoors and playing Scrabble with my grandmother – so the photographs I took earlier in the year are the best that I can manage.
The good news about the awful weather is that it was perfect for sewing. Yesterday, I finished cutting out a baby quilt and started sewing one section. Yes, I had proper sewing time, and my sewing machine and I are now re-acquainted!
I have nicknamed my scarf my ‘unicorn poop scarf’ because I heard that unicorns’ poop is rainbow coloured.
If you are a knitter and want to know more about the scarf, I have noted all the details on my Ravelry page.
