Another lacy scarf from Knitspot.

This one is the Butternut Scarf, knitted in a Colourmart laceweight yarn.

76 days on the needles, but only 7 active days knitting on it. The pattern knits up very quickly, with a nice rhythm. Only one major goof, at the half way point, when I had to rip 11 rows out. I had a lifeline in, thankfully.

Knitted as given, apart from upping the needles one size.

Lovely pattern. Lovely yarn.

This scarf is every bit as delicate as a kiss,  I think.

“Ingrid” – because this piece of knitting is for comfort in the same way that an old Ingrid Bergman B&W 3 hankie movie is for comfort on a dreary winter afternoon. I don’t have a TV to watch, but I do have lace to knit.

Gone to a better home – already!

I  had the devil of a job photographing this scarf – it is a difficult shade to capture consistently at the best of times but the added problem of low light levels made it all the more difficult. Oh – and guess what I noticed when I blocked it? Yep.

I'd love to show the wonderful colour off, if only I could!

December Reflections 4: Red

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
