Our patchwork group has their meeting this afternoon and I didn’t have anything on the go to take with me (well, not any hand sewing). So, what is a girl to do? Start something new!!
My friend Cath and I went to Canberra for Floriade last September (while the boys went motorcycling to Broken Hill for the week) and while there we visited the Bus Shed Markets. We found some beautiful yarn and so both had to buy some (in different colourways) to make a scarf each. The idea is to knit five rows of the mohair and then two rows of the boucle. The sample was knitted with the length of the scarf on the needles, but I can’t estimate how many stitches, so I am just knitting it in the usual fashion. It shouldn’t take too long to finish as it is on12 mm needles.
It will be a good project for this afternoon as I won’t have to concentrate too much, which can be a problem with all the chatting that goes on:>)
