It’s finished! Finally. It’s taken me ages to get this done, and just in time for the warmer weather. Still, it’ll do nicely for next winter. I just don’t seem to have had time to do any crafts recently, as I’ve been exercising and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Our new healthy eating project means that we’re eating lots of fresh food, which does take a bit longer to prepare than convenience or processed foods. It tastes delicious though and I’m enjoying doing some proper cooking for a change.
Once I sat down with my scarf, it finished quite quickly. It’s an easy pattern and I do love the ribbed effect. I got Teddy to model it, as I’m a bit camera-shy unless I’m on holiday, and then I don’t care 😉
His head and neck are somewhat larger than mine, but you get the idea. This is what it looks like laid out flat-ish.
And a close-up of those pockets. I even did the tassels.
The hood is shaped, which gives it a nice look when it’s on.
And from the side.
The front border is folded back to form a channel for the dangly bits to thread through. They may annoy me once I start wearing it but they’ll come out easily enough if they do. I’m rather pleased with it, and I hope it proves to be as cosy as it promises.
I’ve got another small project lined up, but for now I’m going back to the log cabin blanket. It’s about time that had some attention.
