Weekend creativity


Just to prove that I can have some pretension to my new creative blogger award, here is a picture of the scarf I am knitting, which currently measures about 30 inches (75cm) long.

I found a free pattern for the feather and fan design on the web and although it looks complicated it is actually very easy to knit! For those who understand these things it is a simple pattern over four rows, knitted in hand-dyed BFL sock wool on 4.5mm needles.

Three notable things:

1. The speed at which the knitting is growing.

2. Finishing the Anita Shreve book I was reading on and off. One of her best, I thought.

3. Keeping both boys reasonably happy all day today (so far)!

Hi Cathy. I love this knit that you have started. What a beautiful design the stitches make. It is the colours though that I love the most. Gorgeous! I hope you are enjoying it!

Very pretty! I'm a Shreve fan too, but haven't read that one - I'll look out for it.

Ooh thanks everyone!

Nerd Bunny, the actual colour is a little lighter and brighter than the photo, it certainly is very pretty.

Looking at your knitting made me itch to knit again. I haven't done any in years. May have to start again :-)

Go for it, Liz!
