All Made Up

So, after yesterdays post, I finished my Scarf!  Yesterday I needed to seam it together and weave in the ends, so I that's what I did earlier today whilst sitting in the sunshine.

The scarf is very warm - I am wearing it right now as I have been sitting in our kitchen with the french doors open and it has got a bit draughty. It is going to be deliciously cosy come winter time!

This is how I plan to be wearing it in the winter - double loop

single loop
Many thanks to Karen for hosting the Initiative and giving us all a little extra push to do stuff we may not have done otherwise! Even more kudos for having raised so much money for the National Literacy Trust.  Have you seen Karen's dress - its amazing! I am looking forward to seeing it in person on Saturday at the Made Up Meet Up. I am hoping that the weather will be nice enough for me not to need my cowl on Satuday!

I am unbelievably chuffed with this! I have never knitted anything before and now I have something that I can wear. What can I knit next???

  3. Moss stitch is quite a challenge for a first project - well done. It was lovely to meet you today, and I look forward to hearing about your future projects. Oh, and your dress looked fab. Although I think you should style it with DM's and a bike jacket!
