Do You Need A Scarf In August?


The last couple of days I have spent my time on the computer reading other people's blogs and have found them most interesting. As I have said before I am keen to get knitty pals so I can chat about wool and patterns (or my fetish for novelty buttons!). I am slightly intimidated by the wonderful knits I have viewed and some of the knit lingo I have read but..hey..its a learning process, right?


I have posted a picture of one of my recent knits..a real wool scarf. The wool is Silkwood chunky 100% wool and cost £8.00 a skein (of which I used 2). I made up the simple pattern myself and must admit I'm rather pleased with the outcome. I'm hoping to enter it in the village show in September (it's a very small village so I may stand a small chance of a place).

That looks like a really lovely scarf - and I quite fancy having one round my neck looking out the window today :) Good luck with the show, sounds like fun.

Glad you have been enjoying your blog reading and thank you for visiting my blog. You'll soon pick up all the lingo.

Ravelry is a bit like Facebook for knitters - but better as you can store all your projects and yarn in there and see who else is making them/using them etc etc - go here to find out more - www.ravelry.com and I highly recommend signing up :)

That's a very nice scarf. :) Great job!

It's not too warm for a scarf in August where I am. The temperature's dropped way down over the last week.
