I’m embarrassed to tell you how long it took to make this scarf although when you look at the length of it that’s a good reason!
I started it on 24 February 2013 and finished it on 7 July 2013. I get a bit bored knitting the same pattern repeat over and over again so I tend to start multiple projects and juggle them all. No wonder I have so many UFOs!! Plus it’s taken me months to show it to you too. We’ll call it a project that slipped through the cracks!
Even though I blocked the scarf the yarn tends to fold into itself so the scarf is now permanently quite narrow.
The yarn I used is Twisted Sisters Petite Voodoo which is a 50% silk / 50% merino wool blend. It is deliciously soft and silky around my neck. The colourway is Green Teas(e) – a gorgeous blend of greens.
The cold weather finally hit Brisbane this morning so hopefully I’ll be able to start wearing all my woolly knits.
My family is celebrating my Dad’s 90th birthday tonight with a lovely dinner at the Hilton Hotel. I hope Dad likes the scarf I made for him. No doubt he’ll be wearing it tomorrow as it’ll be 7 degrees Celsius in the morning. Perfect for scarves!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Until next time…
