Weather here over the weekend was a bit muddled. Rain, cloud and sunshine all made an appearance not to mention the cold South Westerly...Brr!!
So a lot of time was spent inside under the yummy heat pump.
Last weekend in Wellington I bought a new top and while I was wearing it on Friday I decided it needed a scarf. Why not...
Just something else to stop me from finishing all the other little projects I have on the go.
So colours were chosen. Nothing flash or too expensive, just my faithful Stylecraft Special DK in parchment (1218), black (1002), lime (1712) and midnight (1011). I love it when an idea comes into my head and I go hunting in the cupboard and actually find what I am looking for. No time is wasted waiting for a delivery from Deramores. I can get on and enjoy creating.
With Rose in hand and hook in the other I set to and started creating. I started with a 200 chain then sc back to give the base I needed. I decided I might try a new stitch and so after a little hunting I settled on the the granite stitch aka the moss stitch from mooglyblog. Quite a simple stitch really. No real thought or counting needed. So simple for a Friday night.
By Saturday it had grown quite considerately. Having added the parchment in at the last minute I think helped to break the darkness of it all. It was nice just going around and around not counting. Lovely mindless creating. BLISS!!
By Sunday, all done!
Possibly a little snug. It may stretch? A lesson was learnt. When stitches are small and close together not much stretch goes on whereas another scarf I made in trebles tended to have a lot more stretch. Maybe if I was to make this again I might do 250 chain to start.
So now I have the scarf bug and am in the process of making a scarf for LL. Rather bright for the Winter months don't you think?
It looks like the never ending blanket will never end...
