I don't know about where you are today but it hasn't stopped raining since the moment I got up. Definitely a day to stay in and get in some crafting, me thinks ..
Here's another courtesy of Jenny and her indispensable, and now very well thumbed, book. I don't necessarily agree with India Knight's review comment that this is "the only book about knitting you'll ever need", however it's a jolly good place to start. Naturally I shall be buying others, but I LOVE this book and can easily see myself doing many more of the projects inside.
For this I used about a skein and a third of Rowan's Cocoon in lavender ice, a pretty grey-purple shade. Once I'd finished, I blocked it on a towel overnight which really opened out the lace pattern, flattening the scarf in the process which is good, since it was curling in on itself beforehand.
It's knitted in little arrowhead lace stitch (see below), a repeat of four rows of stitches, and I was grateful for my row counter until I got to grips with the pattern, because I had to keep putting it down. Those nasty chores will get in the way. This project has been a few weeks in the making, it hasn't been easy to sit and get much done in one sitting and I blame those naughty kittens for that. I should have known what was coming when the rescue home sent us photos of them as babes, both mischievously playing with balls of wool. And then there was the ripped blanket - please don't let that be the next thing!!!
Wishing you a lovely week, whatever you may be doing x
