Another scarf finished - this one for a friend of my daughter. Knit with Rowan All Seasons Cotton - which is lovely to work with:
Close up of the pattern - very easy to do and the stitch pattern is reversible. For some reason I have suddenly taken against scarves that have a wrong side.
I like this pattern so much that I have nearly finished another one - this one for ... me! It is made from Rowan Classic Bamboo. It is so soft - I keep putting it 'round my neck just to feel the softness of it. The stitch pattern makes it very warm. I am not enjoying knitting with this yarn much - it is very prone to splitting.
Also found an easy bag to make in this Craft Stylish magazine.
Although, the pattern listed incorrect measurements for the "waistband" which forms the top of the bag. Of course I thought it was probably me being wrong, but I checked and re-checked and they are just - WRONG! Easy enough to fix, but I was a little glad that I stopped to think before I cut, because I had to be a little bit inventive to get the lining and the waistband out of the amount of white fabric that I had - there would have had to have been a Plan B if I had cut before I found the error.
Next week - the making of Christmas gifts begins in earnest!
