Show-Off Sunday

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:

Can you see the bee?  Today I cut the grass for the first time this year.  I can't believe that it is nearly Easter already!  Chocolate here I come ...


  1. That is a gorgeous lacy scarf! I wish I could knit but have trouble holding the two needles plus wrapping the wool around! I cut the grass for the first time last week. Good job really as today it is pouring with rain and not at all springlike!!! x

  2. Rockin'! Do you ever sell stuff on etsy? My wife is addicted to etsy (as a buyer, though).

    I don't think I'd be able to handle owning such a nice scarf. I'd just end up dunking it in my soup on accident and then feeling sad for the rest of the month.


Thank you for leaving a comment. See you again soon I hope!
