This was one of the projects mentioned in my UFO post recently. It is now finished! This is another Stitchnerd pattern and as I’ve said numerous times before, they’re easy to knit but also have some detail to make them interesting….as you can see. This is my Chameleon Bias Scarf.
It’s not often I knit with a solid colour so I am very happy with the result of this beautiful scarf.
It looks and feels so lush and snuggly.
The garter stitch makes it a very portable project to take when you’re at a knitting group and you don’t have numerous pattern stitches to remember. The detail on the edge shows up so well against this cream yarn.
The yarn I used is Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8ply which is a 70% wool / 30% alpaca yarn and is lovely to knit with. I used 4.5mm needles as the yarn is quite a thick 8ply. Five balls were used in this scarf.
Here’s a picture to give you an idea of the size of the scarf. It’s asymmetrical too.
I’m a little bit chuffed as the pattern designer (Susan Ashcroft) requested wether two of my pictures could be displayed on her pattern page. So if you click on this link my scarf is shown on the left hand side….2nd and 5th pictures.
I’ve had a bit of a harrowing day as there is a water leak in my townhouse and my plumber has narrowed it down as being under the garage concrete slab! I now have a couple of holes in the walls as well as some of the pavers near my front door beside the water meter have been removed and a hole dug. A special part needs to be ordered before it can be rectified so for the next few days I have to turn my water meter on and off as I need water so that the water damage is not exacerbated. This is very painful to say the least. You don’t realise how many times a day you actually need to turn on a tap!
I keep trying to keep it all in perspective as in the big scheme of things this is not a major catastrophe and it will be fixed. I need to knit to keep me calm 🙂
That’s my weekend so far. Until next time…
BTW, On the right hand side of the home page of my blog there are lots of interesting links. I’m not sure when you receive my weekly posts whether you see these links. If not, what you can do is click on the Home button which is at the top left hand side of the page. This will take you to the home page where you can view all the links plus the most recent post. One link also takes you directly to my Ravelry home page.
