My So Called Scarf

Struggle as I do with the colours, and the actual knitting of such an inelastic yarn, I persevere, because the weight and the drape of the knitted fabric is something wonderful indeed.

The good news is that the colours are working better in this than they did in the Clapotis.

I have renamed the project, Sunset Strip – which seems apt.
