I've finished my woolen cowl scarf just in time for the high winds we had last Saturday. Who'd have thought I'd be wearing it before next autumn! I enjoyed the test drive, it's lovely and soft and the colour very perfect for a purple obsessed person like myself don't you think? You can see more details on Ravelry here.
Do you remember the knitting/washing disaster I had a few months ago?
turned into this...
Too small for anyone to wear, far too tightly felted to stretch over even the smallest of arms!
A washing disaster that made me sad at all the hours I'd put into knitting it. I wrote to the company that made the yarn and they gave me vouchers to buy more yarn.
But what to do with the tiny cardigan now?
The obvious solution!
I sewed up the arms and along the bottom and hey presto, a new pegbag to replace my old one that was falling to pieces. :)
So what next?
I've started my newest knitting project, it's going to be a little cardigan for a small girl. The pattern's one I've had for many years and shouldn't take too long to do.( I'm a bit wary of long projects now!)
I'm also cautious of the yarn I'm going to use. I don't want any more shrinkages! I'm making the smallest size that the pattern goes to which is 22. That's as small as I hope it ever gets!
For those of you who kindly helped me think of a name for my latest face, I've chosen 'Lilly'.
You can see her here.
Have a great weekend, the sun is out today so maybe I can finally put my scarf away for a little while? :)
