Just In Time For Winter
Do you remember the Patons Pompero which I bought from Kemps back in July? This is what's become of it.
It so lovely and soft and will be great to keep the chills away whilst walking Archie now that the cooler days are here. It's a nice length too. The pattern I followed advised to cast off when the scarf measured 150cm or 60 inches but I carried on for a little longer. I like plenty of scarf to wrap around.
It's an easy eight row pattern repeat, but I had to keep the pattern handy as I found I couldn't memorise it. I think the brain cells are going now that I'm getting older.
There's tassels on one end and a fringe on the other. I've never done either before, all the scarves I've knit previously have had a plain end, so it was nice to learn something new.
I'm doing well with my challenge of having a finished item each month. This is September's.
It's back to crochet for October's item, though it's so chilly now that I'm tempted to cast on a pair of socks. It's a while since I've knit any and I do love my hand knitted socks.
