first, i want to say thank you for all the nice comments about my argyll vest and the striped scarf! you are all so sweet! thank you, thank you, ever so much!
after completing two wooly (and alpaca-y?) and warm projects, i really felt like starting… another one! autumn is indeed the season of grey scarves, and as if i don’t have enough of them (is that even possible?), i’ve cast on for another one.
the inspiration for this one is a scarf worn by the character cecily in the shooting party (1985).
this is a very simple knit and purl pattern and i’m using a hank of lovely, lovely, yarn that i’ve traded with a fellow knitter at ravelry (how could i possibly live without ravelry?) i had an odd ball of rowan felted tweed left over from my helga jumper that a girl from riga was interested in, so i suggested we’d do a swap! i sent her my ball of felted tweed and she sent me a hank of lovely latvian wool. i really, really like this yarn so i might end up needing more of it… i hope there will be enough for the scarf, though, since it’s fairly narrow and there’s about 350 metres on the hank.
some more screen shots:
i must always have an easy project with me wherever i go if the opportunity to knit arrives. the other day i had some lunch on a bench in the park and afterwards i knitted for a bit whilst listening to the pillars of the earth (downloaded from audible to my ipod).
