These scarf photos were taken a very long time ago. Before the scarf was even half finished!
Mind you, we still wear scarves like this one... Woolly and warm. Chunky and cosy. Imperfect but immensely satisfying to knit. I've been holding off on posting these pics cos this scarf was a present. And I didn't want to spoil the surprise :-) On the off-chance that any Swedish people dropped into this blog for a visit...
The pattern is five stitches of plain, five of purl, repeated across the scarf and then plain on the following row. I repeated this five times and then did something random to break up the block. Sometimes the randomness happened as an accident! I am NOT a perfect knitter! But I liked the block/plaid look of this wool and admit that the scarf almost didn't wing it's way across the waves ;-) Lucky it's coming into summer here and a woolly scarf seemed just a bit too incongruous to keep.
And now we're onto the second half of the week. Another one finishing. It's almost alarming at this time of the year hey?! I like the end of the week. But these days I almost feel like I'm digging my heels in, trying to slow the week's passing. After having a blog-reading-fest today I suspect I'm not the only one feeling like this... Hmmm. Talk later in the week.
