Knitting and I, well, we are aquaintances. To say that we are friends would be going much too far and I honestly can only dream of ever having the mutual best friends forever status with that method of bending yarn.
After my grandmother passed away, I inherited this and that from her huge crafting stash and some yarn skeins were among the things. I don’t particularly care for synthetic fibers and, once those had been donated, not much remained for me to use, but I’m determined to tackle this noble art with gusto. Even when the result is less than, um, ah I don’t know how to put it delicately – it’s wonky, okay!
Wait until you see the overview…
This yarn isn’t from the grandma stash, but I’ve bought two skeins of it. It is oh so soft and a fabulous petroleum colour, which doesn’t show very well in the photos. The pattern is something that I came up with myself, as the requirement was to practice an easy repeat and on top of that I should be able to count from the already knitted piece what kind of stitch to do next. I found a smaller-sized square pattern in a knitting book, but decided to make it slightly larger, and the rest was pure improvisation.
I still have the second skein to use and might make the scarf a quite long one, will see how things go. Regardless, I’ve challenged myself in November (or was it October even?) to finish the scarf by New Year’s. That didn’t happen.
What happened, though, was that I located the project on 6th January and took the photos. The second skein is still somewhere in my mansion (studio apartment when being more realistic). I will finish the scarf by next New Year’s!
