Just a quick post today, to show you this really quick scarf I knitted this week. I treated myself to some rather posh wool; a blend of merino and silk from Uruguay. Let's not burden Marathon Runner with how much it cost. (Shh, I don't think I have ever spent so much on one skein of wool!)
It knitted up so quickly, that I thought I would knit another one for a friend whose birthday is on Tuesday. I had some fluffy wool, bought years ago for heavens knows what, but after two attempts and LOTS of knots, I think I am going to give up. Not only is it very hard to see the pattern, it is absolutely impossible to back-track if you make a mistake and very easy to knit bits of fluff instead of the actual stitch. So she won't be getting a scarf for her birthday.
Back to the drawing board but with only just over 24 hours to go!
Anyway, this is turning into a longer post than anticipated but just have to show you this:
