To be honest with you, I'm feeling rather saddened that I have completed those projects of Mum's already... I really enjoyed working on them. It made me feel so close to her, and really warmed my heart.
So now what???
Well, I decided to give her scarf pattern a go for myself... It's a little while since I have worked on a knitted project, and I have quite enjoyed the variety - after focusing so much on crochet lately.
I'm using a pure new wool, recycled from the jumper below. Which begs the question... can I still call it pure NEW wool if it is recycled??? Anyway, it's a fabulous shade of purple, and oh so soft!
The scarf pattern calls for 4ply yarn and 3.5mm needles. I'm actually using 3.75mm, simply because that's what I have! After working for a couple of inches, I decided that the yarn was too lightweight. So I frogged and cast on again, this time using two strands held together.
I love the way it is working up now...
