There has been a bit of cool weather in the Mountain's for the last few days, which is nice after those hot days we had. There's been a bit of rain and fog as well.
It's been nice weather for knitting so I finally finished this Edgar scarf (a free pattern off Ravelry). It's for a friend as a thank you/Christmas present from Lou and I as she will no longer be running play group next year. We're going to miss her. I hope she likes it - she is always admiring my Edgar scarf when I've been wearing it at playgroup this winter and she kept asking me for the pattern, which I kept forgetting to bring for her. I knitted the scarf with Katia Scotch Tweed - it's a silk-cotton mix. It's been sitting in my stash for a while now, waiting to be knitted up into something. It's green with blue flecks in the yarn, which doesn't show up in the pictures.
I saw this scarf knitted up on Stacy's Blog "The Barnacle is my Totem" a while ago. I loved the way it looked so I followed the link to the Purl Bee - Summer Shimmer scarf.Noro Silk garden. I lost the tag in the move so if any one out there recognises this colour or the number on the Noro tag, I would love to know what it is. :)
Usually I take a pic of the ball of wool to post up but this time I didn't. The yarn looked quite pretty as a ball but as I was knitting up the scarf, I wasn't too fussed with the way the colours were coming out. It might be a bad match of wool to this pattern - this pattern might be better with a single colour yarn, not striping yarn. So off to the frog pond it goes...:(
