Been knitting again. Another snuggly cowl made with the gorgeous space-dyed thread from Lang:Mille Flamme. I came across this thread at the Knit and Craft Show earlier this year and bought it from a supplier there who has a very lovely range of other yarns too, knitting4fun
I really like the way this thick/thin yarn knits up, soft and slightly fluffy, the different colours come out randomly, not in repeat rows and the colour combinations are delicious.Works well in a simple four row repeat 'wave' pattern that even I can memorise and not get wrong too many times.
This is a tube that can wrap around the neck once loosely or twice more tightly. I'm not a huge fan of circular needles ( the rows are punishingly, depressingly LONG and oh so easy to forget where I am in a pattern) but this tube is knitted like a normal scarf and when there is just enough yarn for another row or two I knit the last row into the first as I cast off.
No point having a new scarf with nothing to match it...how about a necklace
or a scarf pin to hold it in place?
Friday evening fun. I find myself almost pleased there is a chill wind today - I have nearly a low enough temperature to wear my new scarf/jewellery combo, can't wait until Autumn to try it out.
The scarf really deserved TWO necklaces, so I put together this longer one too
Now I feel motivated to go through all those unfinished necklace projects and get them finished!
